# integration problem! watch

Announcements
1. I got an integration question that came in a diff equation yesterday
Now being the idiot i am I put 1/4 Ln4y, which gives the same, but 1/4lny also does.
Would I be credited?Or would they take off the mark?
ALso I had to find a value of C etc in the diff eq, and my value was off since i did that, woudl I be credited?
2. ln4y = ln4 + lny , where ln4 is a constant.
Not sure about the marking though...

INT 1/4y dy = (1/4)INT(4/4y) dy=(1/4)ln(4y)+C [Function and derivative]
INT 1/4y dy = (1/4)INT(1/y) dy = (1/4)lny+K [Standard integral of 1/y]
Both (1/4)ln4y+C and (1/4)lny+K are both correct. The second can be written as (1/4)lny+(1/4)ln4+C, which simply shows they are equivelant and there is simply a different constant.
If you found the correct value of C for the integral you have, giving you the right particular solution, then you would get the mark.
Also, don't forget you are given marks throughout a question, so even if you were to make a mistake at the very end you would get many of the marks.
4. Thanks
the first part of the question was separting a partial fratcion and integration
1 (dividied by ) ( y(4-y)

So I got one to be 1/4y and integrated as 1/4ln4y
iT was for 4 marks, so I am hoping I get all 4

Thanks for the help guys.
