    Yes, range is y and domain is x. The substitution with u^2, you just rearrange for x and diffrentiate it.

    U^2=X-1
    X=U^2+1

    Diffrentiate the x function and since it is dx/du, you have to multiply the derivative (2U) by the function which you are trying to integrate. I had such questions in my textbook but never realised where I was going wrong! Now I know how to do it.
    Oh that great I will try it later on...
    So,have you got any problem/unsure in C3 or just waiting for the exam?

    Here, it took quite a while to eliminate cos^2x. I hope it's clear in green ink.

    Differentiate the U, as per in substitution questions. Rearrange to get dx.

    When you get dx = du/2sec^2x the sec^2x cancels out with the cos^2x, then it becomes an integral of 1/2u^2 .du :-) Are you okay from there?

    I need to go through mid ordinate and Simpsons rule as I'm a little rusty. But as long as I don't make silly mistakes, I should be fine.

    How about you?

    Use the product rule, to find the differentiall of tan^2(4x) use the chain rule, and then you just change the tan4x's into y .

    Use the product rule, and then factorise
    I tried that, but I can't get it in the form it asks for :/

    Oh, and make sure we all don't make stupid mistakes... Like not integrating in a substitution question...

    Woops.

    Or differentiating 3/x as 3ln(x). That happened on my C4 mock. I can't believe I lost 6 marks because of that silly mistake.

    What have you got so far? Remember y=tan4x so once you have it in terms of tan4x you can replace it with y

    Ive been doing Solomon papers too. They're not too bad but I keep making silly errors... I know all the theory though so its just accuracy I need to be careful about!

    i keep getting around 60/75.
    any ways to improve my scores in 1 day? obviously the real exam result will be alot lower because of nerves and making alot more silly mistakes.
    i can do all the basic stuff thats on the syllabus and questions that are similar every year, i just cant do the new stuff where they try and trick you.

    When you say 'new stuff', do you mean calculus?
