    It does not mention any proof but It a Log base rule proof was asked in an exam question and also a Trig Identity proof

    Edexcel for C1, proof of the sum of an arithmetic series
    Edexcel for C2, proof of the sum of geometric series

    Edit nvm, but I suppose these may come up?

    Although it came up in the June 2012 paper, so I doubt it will come up again. It would still be good to learn it though.

    Thanks. I know most of my proofs although there are a few I've forgotten.
    Like why \dfrac{d \ ln(x)}{dx}=\dfrac{f'(x)}{f(x)} \ and\   why \dfrac{d \ e^x}{dx}=e^x

    Thanks. I know most of my proofs although there are a few I've forgotten.
    Like why \dfrac{dln(x)}{dx}=\dfrac{f'(x)}  {f(x)} and why \dfrac{de^x}{dx}=e^x
    For \dfrac{d}{dx}ln(f(x)), you just need to use the chain rule, letting u=f(x). For the e^x one, I think you could just say:

    y=e^x

    lny=xlne

    \dfrac{1}{y}*\dfrac{dy}{dx}=1

    \dfrac{dy}{dx}=y=e^x
