    Just a question..

    for Cartesian equations can they contain inverse trig functions?, it's much easier to find the parameter in terms of X or Y
    eg,

    y=sin t. X=cos t

    cos^-1 = t


    therefore Y=sin((cos^-1(t))
    If they only ask for a Cartesian equation, then you can do that (don't write t instead of x in the exam though). If they ask for the equation in the form y = f(x), then, of course, you can't.

    EDIT: Oh, wait, you can in this case. But in general, check exactly what they ask for.

    Oh god I hate maths I just wanna get this over ad done with!
    going to go through all the past papers quickly, learn all the integration stuff, then get a good sleep, wake up at 6, review all integration stuff, and I'm done for maths!

    It's particularly annoying when I probably can't answer any of the questions people are asking on thsi thread, making me seriously panic about this exam. D:

    Getting a little bit stressed out atm, but hopefully a good night sleep will sort that out!

    Good luck all!

    Same. It's really getting to me.

    Good luck!

    Solomon paper L first question, why does the minimum number of people in the queue mean we need to make dn/dt = zero ?!?! Can anyone explain? I swear dn/dt is the rate of increase of people in the queue not the actual number of people in the queue?

    integrate Sin(2X)Cos(2x) please help
    Hi dear you can you use the double angle formula for that problem

    you have to carry out the following calculations
    As we know that Sin(2X)=2sin(x)cos(x) but in your case we have got Sin2xcox2x so we just need to replace 2x with 4x as follows

    Sin(4x)=2sin(2x)cos(2x) and then rearrange to get Sin(4x)/2=sin2sxcox2x

    and then integrate Sin4x/2 and u will get -cos4x/8.
    hope that make sense

    The derivative is zero at minimums and maximums. You are looking for a minimum.

    Thanks for correcting, if the question said find this cartesian in the form Y=f(x)

    Could I use this inverse trig format?
    sorry if its a stupid question !

    Hi guys, i'm ready for this exam but theres one thing that always trips me. When solving differential equations, what side do you gather constants on? E.G dx/dt=15(5x-1) ...do you re-arrange to 1/15(5x-1) dx=dt

    or 1/(5x-1) dx = 15dt

    I'm not sure if they'd accept something like that.

    It would be easier to just use a trig identity here:

    \cos^2 t + \sin^2 t = 1 \ \Rightarrow \ x^2 + y^2 =1

    So a basic equation of a circle.

    Sometimes I honestly get a negative answer for integration and I know I have done it correctly. Do I just make it positive?

    It doesn't matter, constants can be taken outside of integrals, so do whatever's easiest.

    I think you need to prove a^x derivative is a^x(lna)
