About me

I am currently a BSc Mathematics student at the University of Bristol and I am already no stranger to teaching. I have worked as a teaching assistant in my secondary school's maths department where I also led one-on-one sessions with students from GCSE to sixth form. As a mathematics student, I love a good problem. The harder the better (right?). There's no greater satisfaction than understanding how to tackle them and it will be my pleasure to help you get there!

We went through the series for FP1. The lesson was good. It taught me another way of doing series which was different from how we learnt it in class. As an improvement just spend more time factorizing out the equations for next time finding common term.

Find the exact solution to: ln(x) + ln(7) = ln(21)

Log rules:

log(a) + log(b) = log(ab)

so, in this case, we must find x such that 7x = 21

thus x = 3

similarly, log(a) - log(b) = log(a/b)

rearranging the original equation we get:

ln(x) = ln(21) - ln(7)

so x = 21/7 = 3

Log rules:

log(a) + log(b) = log(ab)

so, in this case, we must find x such that 7x = 21

thus x = 3

similarly, log(a) - log(b) = log(a/b)

rearranging the original equation we get:

ln(x) = ln(21) - ln(7)

so x = 21/7 = 3

Solve for 0=<x<360 : 2((tanx)^2) + ((secx)^2) = 1

First step I would take would make it look less intimidating by converting all components into sin and cos i.e

2(((sinx)/(cosx))^2) + 1/((cosx)^2) = 1

Notice that there is a common denominator of cosx^2    so I would multiply this up:

2((sinx)^2) + 1 = (cosx)^2

Eliminate cos by putting it in the form of sin using the trig identiy (cosx)^2 = 1 - (sinx)^2

so we have:

2((sinx)^2) + 1 = 1 - (sinx)^2

rearranging we obtain

3((sinx)^2) = 0

(sinx)^2 = 0

sinx = 0

In between 0 and 360, the sine function is 0 at 0 and 180 (360 is also a solution but not in the range)

so x = 0, 180

Write sqrt(50) in the form Asqrt(50) where A is an integer

Note that sqrt(ab)=sqrt(a)sqrt(b)

Thus to have A, an integer, we must find the highest number 'a' that is a square number and is also a factor of 50.

So, a=25 and b=2 (ab=25x2=50)

and we have:

sqrt(50) = sqrt(25)sqrt(2) = 5sqrt(2)  (A = 5)

Note that sqrt(ab)=sqrt(a)sqrt(b)

Thus to have A, an integer, we must find the highest number 'a' that is a square number and is also a factor of 50.

So, a=25 and b=2 (ab=25x2=50)

and we have:

sqrt(50) = sqrt(25)sqrt(2) = 5sqrt(2)  (A = 5)
