# Help with integrating without substitution (C4) Watch

Announcements
1. Hi all! I missed a week from college and doing catch up work. I have to do without substitution.

I was there only for lessons where we did partial fractions which can not be done with this question as far as I can see? The text book I have is not much help either, and have tried live maths too!

I have a funny feeling it is something obvious but can not see it Thanks!
2. Does the differential of the bottom bracket help you spot something relative to the top?

huh? xD Sorry my maths terminology is not great do you mean if there is something similar about the denominator and numerator? (as in the x terms)

Integration is the inverse of differentiation.

If you look at the solution brecon's given, you'll see he uses what I've said.

Yeah I just noticed that as I looked more indepth! Sorry! Thankyou

This is just integration by substitution (u=f(x)), but without explicitly stating it.
11. Ahh cool! its all making sense to me now that i have read through it all a few times
