    how do you work out the range and domain of a function
    it always comes up in c3
    its worth like 1 or 2 marks normally but i never get it :/

    I always get confused with these yet in seems so simple.
    Well the domain is the values which x takes and the range is the y values.
    If you know the domain/range for a function e.g. f(x) then the domain/range of f-1(x) is just the opposite way round..i think.

    Can someone show me the step-by-step differentiation of this:

    f(x)=3e^x - \dfrac{1}{2}lnx - 2

    Thanks!

    I think its

    3xe^x- \frac{x}{2}lnx

    According to the markscheme, the answer is:

    3e^x - \dfrac{1}{2x}

    Dunno where the \dfrac{1}{2x} came from.

    you take the derivative of x which is 1 than divide the derivative of the function by the function, and if there is a constant you just multiply.

    generally if you have a expression like this;  k ln (f(x))  than the derivative is

     k \times\frac{f'(x)}{f(x)}

    k is the constant. so they took the derivative of x, than divided it by x and the constant was 1/2 which they just left at the bottom, instead of leaving it multiplied by 1/2

    Wait of course the derivative is 1/x not lnx :P

    Oh, wait. I was over-thinking this one!
    I just had to multiply -\dfrac{1}{2} by \dfrac{1}{x}

    can someone please help me. i'm looking for a song that has 'lalala' repeated in it and has lots of clapping. its quite catchy and sounds similar to something that the ting tings would release.
    Just a guess, it's not Brick By Boring Brick by Paramore is it?

    U guys there is a question in the exam style paper in the Edexcel book page 140 in old book, question 6b.....can any one answers this for me .....(tanp=-2)
    i differentiated the equation

    The Question States:
    The Curve C has equation y=tanx + lnsecx (-pie/2<x<0)
    At point P on C, Whose X coordinate is P, The gradient is 3

    B) Show that tanp=-2


    thanks

    At the point P, dy/dx = 3, so make your differntiated equation equal to 3, and sub in x =p , into it and simplify, rearrange to get tanp=-2.
