It's exactly what Sean said, integration is possible when there is kx before the e^(x^2). Because to get that you differentiate e^(x^2) to give 2x e^(x^2). I hope that helps.
Oh I see, that's why e^(x^2) stays the same. Thanks a hundred.

I was wondering why I'm left with e^{x^2} + C after integrating that. Because shouldn't e^{x^2} be integrated and turn to something else if I follow the reverse chain rule?
No, because you can't integrate it that way.
.
You're 'recognising' that you've got which is the derivative of by the chain rule, hence reverse it and voila.

Thank you.

How do you find the height of trapezium (h) to use the trapezium rule?
h is the 'width' of the strips.

I also get 1/12. Which paper is this from?
C4 January 2014 IAL

Oh okay, so if given a table of value you just use the difference between each x value? What if you're only given the number of strips and to find the area between two x values?

Ah so it is because it is parametric it is different, thank you very much that is perfect Just what I needed

Thank you for sticking with me through this haha :P
That's okay

Then you have to use the number of strips (given that they are all equal in 'height' (length)) to work out the height.

I think you subtracted 2AB instead of 2BA. Have you checked with the markscheme?

I get 33i -20j 42k
http://qualifications.pearson.com/co...c_20130815.pdf

pg 15 It has 17i-20j-6k

You might need to add 2BA because they are both going into B. But because in the previous question you find AB it's easier to subtract
10. sorry guys but does anyone know the link to madasmaths for exercises on integration and vectors? can't seem to find them

cheers!

Thanks
12. and btw does anyone know what proofs or theory might come up? do we need to know surface areas of certain 3d shapes?
13. Guys do you always have to simplify direction vectors lets say line L1 has points A(1,1,1) and B(7,13,25)

so is the direction vector (6,12,24) or (1,2,4) ?????

14. has anyone done the june 2016 C34 IAL paper yet - this exam was 2 days ago? The C3 questions in it were very similar to the ones that we had on our paper. Maybe with a bit of luck we may have similar C4 questions that were on that paper..
june 2016 IAL

17. guys you know when they ask you to 'use your approximation to estimate an approximate value of blah blah and you have to find X. how do you find x.? for example, ques 4b here:

No you wouldn't have to! But it would be easier to do algebra with (1,2,4) rather than (6,12,24) - it's just the value of will be different in

yeah i saw it, the C4 parts to it were piss easy. I doubt we'll get anything similar
20. (Original post by M&F)
But in some questions I have seen it being simplified and not simplifying gives a different answer like Q7 on this paper.

I haven't looked at the question but the direction vector is preceded by a constant e.g. K(6,12,24) so it can be simplified to k(1,2,4) because k is an arbitrary constant (it can take on any value).
