You noticed, and were curious about, the algebra. You write well, too.

Depends on where you live. Some countries start Calculus in the final year of high school.

But usually Universities teach it in the first year.

I was thinking of putting a small introduction to it on this website.

How old are you expected to be to be at that standard?

The difficult kind ! It has calculus in it.

Um...what kind of algebra is that?

A bit outside my area, but I found a website that has ALL sorts of stuff about harmonic motion which could help here

Can anyone give me a hand with this, cause I'm stumped and can't remember exactly how to go about solving this.

here's the eqn

m[d^2x/dt^2 + wsubo^2 x] = F cos wt

I'm supposed to show that x(t) = xsubo cos wt

w is the incident freq
wsubo is the resonant freq
m is mass

I'm guessing it has to be shown by undetermined coefficients but I can't find the right path exactly.
