The domain of the original is the range of the inverse and vice versa.

The second thing is that when it comes to fractions, X cannot equal a value which causes the denominator to =0

In terms of e^x graph, the domain is XER and the range is y>0

There will be good videos on YouTube which explain it perfectly.

Also, try to give us a question that you're stuck with so we can discuss it.

I now have a question. So for January 2012 c3, I got question 7 part c I think. The one where it's working out the domain of the inverse. I understand this is the range for f(x) but I had x>1 and not x>0 so I'm just confused now haha

Try drawing the graph of f^-1(x)

The denominator of the function cannot equal 0. Therefore any value greater than 0 is fine.

You knew that the denominator had to be greater than 1 but what you need to know is that it can also equal 1.

The number that it cannot equal is 0. Hence x>0

Have a look at this, http://www.examsolutions.net/a-level...0&solution=7.3

It provides a graphical perspective.

How do you remember which method of integration to use for different types of questions?

Chain rule = function within a function e.g. (x+2)^4
Product rule = function x function e.g (x+2)(x+7)^4
Quotient rule = function/function e.g. (x+2)/(x+8)

Thats differentiation, I'm on about parts/chain/substitution...

Ah, I've noticed my mistake too--I assumed this was AQA (my board), so perhaps you guys don't do integration in C3

Hey guys,

I wanted to ask, when you have to find X2, X3, ... in the iterative formula, do the answers have to always be in radians?

I would assume so unless otherwise specified.

if you are working with sin or cos i.e if you see sin or cos in the question or the range given is in terms of pi we always use RADIANS. otherwise if no sin or cos present and the range is in degrees then we work in normal degrees

I should point out -occasionally, e.g. on last year's paper, there was a question on iteration where degrees/radians was not specified. I believe the 'default' from C3 onwards in radians.

you can but thats wrong id say. You only use radians when you have a sin or cosine in the question, we have been taught this thats why i know haha
