    I dont think they will ask for the domain of fg(x). Do you have an example from anywhere it has come up?

    As for the hardest paper definitely the 2013-2015 ones.
    I'd have to look for an example, but it has 100% come up before

    and thanks, will have a look

    wow ur right. I was gonna go into the exam thinking that xD. But I dont think they will give u tthat anyway unless its a substitution question or something
    You can let u=1-cosx therefore du/dx=sinx and (u^2-1)^2 = cosx and I think you should be able to solve it? :/

    integral of: (1-u^2)^2 * u^-0.5 and you can expand and multiply? just of the top of my head.

    Haha, better to spot it now than after the exam, And no way this comes up, it's more an FP2 style Q, Ano123 is trying to scare all the shadow users 100%

    I did a paper yesterday (can't remember the year) and drawing/sketching graphs was in about half the questions. The other half had the graphs already drawn and you had to work stuff out... Not a pleasant experience
    Oh yeah I remember that paper, it was distressing lol

    It's more fun without any substitution's :cute:

    AQA haven't specifically asked - however when finding solutions you kind of need to know it.

    The main points:

    The solutions of fg(x) must satisfy the domain of g(x)
    The solutions of gf(x) must satisfy the domain of f(x)

    I've done all the past papers, and i wanna do a challenging one so if someone can tell me a hard paper i would like to do it thanks
    Try OCR past papers, good luck.

    Did you use reverse bracket/chain rule there? If so, that is incorrect as what you have their doesn't look like it differentiates to the integral.

    To use that rule, either the function inside the bracket must be linear, or the derivative of the function is outside the bracket, e.g. f'(x)*(f(x))^n
    please give us an example of where inside the brackets its not linear

    If it's not linear, you can't integrate using reverse chain - you have to use substitution or parts etc

    Integrate x^2(x^3-10)^6 .dx

    I made this up, but using that 'reverse chain rule', you can do this in two or so steps without parts/substitution.

    Just use substitution. 3x^2du = dx. So you get : 3(x^3-10)^7/7 + C

    I would suggest googling it? And yeah, you need to know the arctan graph.
