1. Am stuck on this..how to differentiate :

If I could convert it to ln I should be able to do it but dunno how to convert it to ln

2. Do you know the change of base formula? Written in terms of ln it is:

So ln(6x/x-1)? How do you differentiate that?

Use the log law:

Or differentiate it directly using the normal method for finding the derivative of a natural logarithm. You need to use the quotient rule for that.

The general law works for any base:

If c is the number e then you have the law which I gave in my last post.

I don't mean to sound patronising, but why you have notes? I've never made notes for maths
I always just did examples on paper and binned them afterwards - all the notes I need are neatly typed up in the textbook. It's pretty much the same for most people in my set, except most of them keep their example questions.

I also need an A*, but I don't find notes very useful at all, as maths is not something you can rote learn - you learn it by doing it. Practice is key
