do we need to know how to integrate/differentiate arccosx arcsinx and arctanx?
Not for C4 no. FP3 yes

I just don't understand what's happened on step 2 of 8b

If you ever are stuck with an integral, consider substitutions like u = x+1 for this question, it may not be clear to see the 1-1, and it may be a little longer, but it'll give you the answer.

Ah okay thanks I came across a madas question with it and had noo idea what to do few
4. Sorry guys already asked but the madas exam papers, are all those questions what feature in the individual topic questions or are they different questions?

Cheers brah I was thinking of doing that but didn't believe it would work

6. And anyone have any tips on vectors even after exam solutions I am so confused.

Yeah, draw a 2D good diagram.

Practice, diagrams, know the basics and just.. do as best as you can in the other parts of the paper and attempt the extension questions too.

There are only so many ways you can integrate something in C4 maybe some substitition or factor formulae or addition or something in your formula booklet might help.. otherwise, try everything if you are stuck

Also, if you are asked to integrate lnx, you can use by parts and integrating 1 * lnx.

Can we use long division here? Then integrate that ?

Just open the questions up and compare?
12. I've done so much Madas C4 papers in the past few days I'm getting sick of C4

But there has been a worrying lack of questions involving differentiating a^x so I should probably practice those.

Today is maths revision day for me!

there is so much they can ask you about a^x, if it even pops up in the end, but have fun

Last year's paper involved integrating it at the end lmao

Maybe it won't come up this year Still gonna practice either way

Try integrate something like though.

There isn't anything to know beyond writing and then using your normal knowledge to integrate/differentiate where in this case.

Wouldn't that be just partial fractions?

Wouldn't a substitution work?
