# C3: How to integrate? Watch

1. (Original post by luuucyx)
huumm i knew that haha
substitution?
all ive been shown are realllyyy simple ones of these...
You could use chain rule, but backwards. That would work!!

1/a x 1/(n+1) x (ax+b)^(n+1)

I think im missing something here, help is appreciated, if you integrate x^-1 its not possible is it? you'd end up dividing by 0 ??

Bear in mind i'm still in AS year and studying C2 atm.
sorry my explanation wasn't as clear...integrating 1/x gives you ln x, its a rule u should learn.
Let me know if you get stuck

nah ocr its C3...
really? which OCR, im on OCR and I have my C3 exam next month, ive been through 6 past papers and never come across any integration by substitution.

Unless its OCR gateway or 21 century of any other weird OCR thing, in that case ill let you off

This is equivalent to showing that the derivative of is because integration is the reverse of differentiation.
Note that
Now if you let .
Therefore we have:

Therefore as required.

8. (2x + 1)/x
goes to
(2x/x) + (1/x)

then integrate

to 2x + in [x] + c

the second one uses the same method....

(2x+1)^2/x^2

goes to

(4x^2/x^2) + (4x/x^2) + (1/x^2)

then integrating you get

4x + 4In [x] - 1/x

simplifies to

4x + In [x^4] -1/x (although this step is probably unnecessary)

(2x/x) + (1/x)

2x + in

Is the in key the one next to the iog key?
