No set one, there's a variety of methods. You could expand out and say by inspection or by inspection or note that , or use the substitution on the latter half of the integral, or , etc...

Expand and use the identity:

Sorry , could how explain how you got (cos^2)(x)/2 ,is that the reverse chain rule?

Yeah.
6. (Original post by Zacken)
Yeah.
Hey.
Would you be able to help me understand what is meant in question 8.
I cant visualize what is mean by point c lies on l2 such that AC is perpendicular to BC.

Crap drawing:

Green is line 1, blue is line 2.
8. Zacken Is it possible to use integration by parts with this?

Yep, that's definitely another method.

Ah okay thank you!

Oh yeah this is a bit random but, assuming that you did (which I think you did), how you find last year's C3 paper? I've heard complaints about it but was it really that bad?

No worries.

Seemed fairly standard to me.

Would you say that the papers generally get harder (even if only a bit) from the earlier ones to the later ones?

Erm, I wouldn't really say so, no. They seem to fluctuate in difficulty, some of the recent ones area easier, most are standard, some are harder.

Ah okay awesome, thanks Zacken! Best of luck with things.
