It shouldn't be that bad, but who doesn't love Maths Lets see how you do with integration and it can be done using C4 techniques too

that is a nice question, i can only see partial fractions in this?

Indeed And I wouldn't go down the partial fraction route, instead I separated it all into sin's and cos's, also remember your identities and double angle formulas and you should slowly get there I think this one took me about 10 minutes to do, trying two different approaches too

its probably soooo wrong ! lool

ONLY if you have time, could you pick out the hardest questions in the soloman papers for C4 and go through them?
Sure
I will have a look next week once the GCSE 100 videos are sorted!

Could you show your working as that is quite a way off the actual answer. What have you actually done and to get that?

thank you ! i know you must be very busy so me and probably everyone else appreciates what you are doing, again thank you very much for your help, good luck with your class and the videos

p.s. could you let us know when you put up the video on this forum? thank you

haha dw i expected that, i was improvising much of the way haha and i realised i did VITAL mistakes on the way haha. i was just seeing if partial fractions work but it probably just complicates everything

Fair enough then and I wouldn't suggest a substitution as that would also over complicate the question, I'd just try and simplify the expression as much as possible and then use a certain technique to get the final answer

That's unfortunately incorrect :-/ Did you try to simplify the integral as much as you possibly could before integrating? Remember you double angle formulas and trig identities might come in use for this question

this is what i did:
doesn't the integral simplify to: ? and then i used the identity: and ended up with ---> and went on from here :/
14. Here is the diagram sorry:

and question:

how did they figure out the value for t?

Well the top line is correct but the bottom one can be simplified to give a simplified integral then you need to use a certain technique to integrate the integral

Hmm I'm not quite sure how you got it to simplify into that :-/ What can the denominator be expressed as? Then is there something you know that can simplify it? Once you've done that is there anyway you could simplify the fraction? Let me know if you're still stuck

Edit: It looks like you're missing a function in your numerator, other than that's its all going the correct way so far

Okay so how else can that be written? Then maybe try parts on it to see if you can get the answer

for top and bottom?

for top and bottom?
Yeah, I'm sure you can rewrite what you've got as a combination of trigs? Then all you'll have to do is IBP and you'll get the correct answer
