Is there an antiderivative?

Very shocking considering he got selected for Trinity Camp from BMO2
Not yet m8...

We're all waiting for UKMT to email us. There's a prize announcement that has yet to come out as well, but should either be out soon (it's been far long already!). I think he's also in a slightly bad position, given that 10 other people got the same score as him, and he's on a gap year and hasn't had previous training before, but we'll see soon.

Congratulations on Egmo again, by the way!

Yep. :-)

x.
I seen a similar method to this in a STEP 1 integral (STEP 1 2002 maybe?), is there a special name for this method? (I + J and I - J and adding them)?

Yep, it works with integrating and . There isn't a specific name for it because it's very very rarely useful, I think I've only ever seen one other integral amenable to it. An yeah, it is STEP I, 2002, Q7. :-)

what difference does it make?

A shame, it's extremely simple but so so clever
15. (Original post by Zacken)
Yep. :-)
Nice solution. Not intuitive to me at all.

Yep! I have to agree. If you want, Siklos discusses it briefly in Q20 of the Advanced Problem in Core Mathematics booklet. :-) (page 56 for me)

Thanks! Not my solution though.

No way????

physicsmaths is this true??

Tbf GCSE is crap some people in my class who got A*s actually failed AS Y12 lol
Unfortunately yes, it is true haha. I was very bad in school I got expelled(permanent) out of my first school within months and didnt give two shits. Was on a D revised a few days for maths and got an A then I knew I was half decent. Hence my teachers carried on putting me down and I showed those pricks lol.
A in gcse maths-> high score BmO2. I hope I have redeemed myself.
