if its f'(x) what should i do?
If it's asking you to find f'(x) that means differentiate it.
If it gives you f'(x) and it asks you to find the curve, then integrate it.

so f its f'(x) i must integrate
f'(x) is the derivative with repsect to x of f(x) so to find f(x) you must 'undo' the differentiation, so you must integrate.
3. could you help me with this (b) its an easy question but i am struggling to get the answers.

Re-arrange one of the equations in the form y = mx + c and then sub this into the other equation.

See if you can spot your mistake yourself, otherwise you'll need to put up your working in some way for me to check. But, make sure you understand what I did.

why did you sub directly using this eq from (a)

than using this eq, its the same thing but you get a different answer.
4y – 3x –15 = 0

No, you don't get a different answer; you're just doing it wrong somehow, but I can't check unless you show me your working.
