    Right someone please help me out?

    \LARGE \int \frac{2}{x-3}


    How would I do it? :yep: I've tried looking at \LARGE \int \frac{f'(x)}{f(x)} but it doesn't really work... Pleaseeee help
    I thought it would be just 2ln(x-3)

    I'll have a look at that tomorrow, calling it a day now!
    Tomorrows plan is to do some other subject for the morning and end the day with C3. Is it worth doing tons of questions on 'numerical methods'? - I mean, there's only two things to it and they never change. Only iteration & sign change.

    There is a lot of questions in the C3/C4 book but Idk, what dya think I should do?

    \LARGE \int \frac{e^2^x}{e^2^x+3} dx

    This has to be in the form: \huge \int \frac{f'(x)}{f(x)}dx= k ln\left |f(x) \right | + c


    So: \huge \frac{1}{2}\int \frac{2e^2^x}{e^2^x+3}= \frac{1}{2}ln(e^2^x+3)+c

    Let me know how that works out for ya

    Having trouble with the equation shown, I know how to get the values of x but the problem is what way does the \huge > sign go?

    I sort of understand which way it is when working the equation out algebraically. I want to be able to know which way the sign is supposed to go directly from the graph of the function. Is it even possible?
    I can draw it on my calculator with no problem, but when writing the solution of x, how am I supposed to know which way the  > sign is supposed to be?
    \huge \left | x+2 \right |> 2x+1

    Thanks

    Thanks a lot for your help... but i'm still a little confused on how you got your answer, i'm getting almost the same answer as you but it's with a 1/2e^3 ln(e^2^x+3)+c instead of 1/2 ln(e^2^x+3)+c. Could you go through all the steps of your working please thank you!

    is my answer correct? I might be wrong too!

    Right the way I did It:

    -I looked at the equation. I differentiated the bottom to see if the differential is the same as the top. It's not.
    - So I worked out what I needed to add to the top to make it equal to the differential of the bottom.
    -I put a 2 at the top. HOWEVER you cant just put a number there...So to cancel that 2 out, I put 1/2 on the outside. This means, the equation is sill the same.

    then just put it in the form of ln(...)

    that's it !
