# Integrate 1 + sinx/cos x Watch

1. (Original post by James A)
have you learnt the integration rule, where if you differentiate the denominator, you get the value that appears in the numerator. hence ln(your original function)

have you come across this before?

this could prove useful here.

someone else correct me if im wrong

WHOOPS PARTIAL FRACTIONS ARE THE WAY FORWARD
Look at post no. 9, i have hinted towards this method.

you wally.
Why post then?
no idea

It's not.

yeah i know, but i forgot to include your post in my response. Sorry.

you wally.
i had to look that up :P

It's not.
Both ways, can be used. Your method is faster, but doing partial fractions also takes moments.

integrate: 1 +u/1-u^2 ??
Please put in brackets with things like this, i.e. (1+u)/(1-u²). Not doing so has led to some misleading advice because people think you mean and instead of and .

Anyway, you got the right answer .

(In fact you can remove the mod signs since for all .)

I beg to differ: your partial fraction isn't the same as the function of the substitution (see Nuodai's post).

Sound like my maths teacher now
Thanks, I will next time

So we were solving the wrong question. The question was different, right?

I've been made grumpy with age

Yeah..sorry that was my fault. As noudai said...I caused confusion in the way I wrote it out
15. (Original post by nuodai)
If you substitute then you get , so you get on the denominator. How might you write in terms of ?
Why have you made u equal to cos x here?

No problem, but please learn LaTeX, it only takes a few minutes to learn it.

I'll try and learn it when I'm having difficulty with C4 again before I post the problem

Typo; I'd set . If I'd actually set then I wouldn't have got , after all.
19. An alternative approach would be to notice that , which after a bit of cancelling leads to logs directly.

EDIT: just realised the OP was asked for a specific sub, so this can be ignored.

thanks for that.
I'd stick with my method though
