    I graduated from St Marys 2 yrs ago so here's my 2c from what I can remember Now to get in, you just hand them in your application form and reports/NAPLAN/other docs etc and they'll assess it and will let you know, so no need for exams or anything. Now me being so bad at English, couldn't get...

    Polyomials question

    \noindent \text{Begin by writing the long division statement:} \\ P(x)=(x^2-5)Q(x)+x+4 \\ \text{We also require P(-x), and we can find this out from the expression above:} \\P(-x)=((-x)^2-5)Q(-x)-x+4 \\ \\ \text{Adding both these expressions, we get:} \\...

    Hazard Perception Test

    The hazard perception test is exactly like the practice Q's (unless it's changed from last yr) so all I did was just spam the practice qs until I could get then all correct every try, and then did the test and was all g You could go over the handbook if you have time/bothered, but yeh most of...

    Help with Induction???

    1^2 +2^2 +3^2+ ... +k^2 =\frac{1}{6}k(k+1)(2k+1) \qquad (*)\\ \\$ Prove true for $ n = k+1, ie: \\ 1^2 +2^2 +3^2+ ... +k^2 + (k+1)^2 =\frac{1}{6}(k+1)(k+2)(2k+3) \\ LHS = \frac{1}{6}k(k+1)(2k+1) + (k+1)^2 \qquad $ from $(*) \\$ Now factorse $ \frac{1}{6}(k+1): \\ =\frac{1}{6}(k+1)\left...

    4U Roots of Unity/Polynomials Question

    $ \noindent Since $ |z|=1, $ we can use the identity: $z^n+z^{-n}=\cos n\theta $ (you can prove this by subbing in $z= $ cis$\theta $ and using DMT$. \\ \\$ Dividing the LHS by $z^3, $ we obtain $: \\ z^3+z^{-3} = 2\cos 3\theta \qquad $ Using the above identity$ \\ \\ $ On the RHS, we divide...

    Maximisation and Minimisation Q Help please!

    $\noindent we can write the sum of two positive integers as $ x+y=k,$ where $x,y,k $ are positive integers$ \\ \Rightarrow y= k -x \qquad (1) \\ \\ $ now the product, P, is equal to $xy \\ P=xy = x(k-x) =x^2 -kx \qquad $ from eqn 1$ \\ \frac{dP}{dx}=2x - k \\ \therefore $ max at $x =...

    Volumes of Revolution Help!

    yeh it can be pretty confusing and dodgy in the beginning, but basically once you draw up all the curves, try to identify which closed region they 'form.' So once we draw all the curves/lines (in red), they'll only form a triangle on top (try not to think of the axes if it helps)...

    Volumes of Revolution Help!

    For part a) the region bounded by all those three 3 curves is actually the upper triangle (ie limits of integration is from 1 to 2 ). You can figure this out if you draw all those 3 curves, you'll see that only the upper triangle is fully bounded/enclosed So subbing the new limits in we...

    Maths X1 Cambridge Polynomial Help!

    $ Let the roots be $ \alpha, \beta, \gamma $ and $ \alpha\beta=\gamma,$ then: $ \\ d=\alpha\beta\gamma =\gamma^2 \\ c=\alpha\beta + \alpha\gamma + \beta\gamma=\gamma +\alpha\gamma+\beta\gamma \\ \therefore c+d=\gamma^2 + \gamma + \alpha\gamma+ \beta\gamma = \gamma(\alpha+\beta+\gamma+1) \\c+d =...

    Complex Numbers Question HELPPPP !!!

    pretty sure it should be 1/2 cos(2x) for (c) z^4 + 1 = (z^2+1)^2-2z^2=(z^2-\sqrt{2}z+1)(z^2+\sqrt{2}z+1) \\ $Dividing by $ z^2, $ we get :$ \\ z^2 + z^{-2}=(z+z^{-1}-\sqrt{2})(z+z^{-1}+\sqrt{2}) \\ $ Applying DMT and cancelling outs the sines: $ \\ 2 \cos{2\theta}=(2 \cos \theta - \sqrt2)(2...
