Letters are really just in the dinner queue for numbers
BIDMAS or BODMAS?
Examples of how to use BIDMAS
Formula, Substitute and Solve (FSSSSSSS)
A slightly harder example
We have spent a lot of time looking at how to use algebra to factorise and solve quadratics. We have completed the square, we have used the quadratic equation and we have used the T-Method. This has led to this series of videos where we now use all the information gained to sketch the graphs.
We need to make sure that, for all quadratics, we have access to tools to find the x-intercepts, y-intercepts and the turning point. Once we have these four pieces of information we can confidently sketch any quadratic equation.
In this video we recap how to use the T-Method to factorise. There are a number of examples in how to solve the quadratic and find the important points.
The video is a little long, but it covers all the things you need to know.
