    Can someone explain the integration of sin2ysiny (no squared)?

    EDIT: I figured it out, 2/3 sin(cubed)y, with help from the mark scheme. But is the only way of integrating these type of questions by imagining differentials? Or is there another method I'm missing here?

    That is the quickest way of doing this integral. You can also note that Cos(3y) = Cos(2y + y) = cos2ycosy - sin2ysiny, and cos(y) = cos(2y - y) = cos2ycosy + sin2ysiny, so sin2ysiny = (cosy - cos3y)/2, so the integral is (1/2)siny - (1/6)sin3y

    This identity will be given in the pink formulae booklet.

    According to the mark scheme, it can be solved by integration by parts too :/ Any idea on how to do it?

    Yeah it's like a "loop" kind of thing. Just take care to choose the different functions carefully so as not to get something that cancels out to 0 and doesn't tell you anything. I'd start by letting siny be the function you first integrate and sin2y the one you first leave the same.

    Thanks for the answers mate. I think I understand it now, though just doing the original testing for differentials is indeed the easiest method.

    Yeah it is. The other methods are good for if you have something like a Sin3y or Sin4y in there, something you can't instantly just express in a more manageable way.

    Top 3 hardest C3 papers to date and hardest C4 Papers
    Based on my scores the hardest C3 papers are:
    June 2013
    Jan 2014 (r)
    June 14 (r)

    Haven't done as many C4 papers yet, but the hardest that I've done so far is June 2007.

    Hi, how would I find the domain for this question?
    I understand that the domain of the inverse function is the range of the orginal function.

    Im having difficulty finding the range

    question 8A

    Well you could try drawing a sketch. Sorry if that isn't helpful, it's just there's not much else to say without giving it away. Which I can do if you like..

    What is the range of values that f(x) can take?

    I'll get you started 3 is... 3. It's there and it plays a part in the overall range of f(x) but it doesn't vary. So what's the range of the other term... and hence the range of the whole function?

    In general, think about what happens when x gets very large, when x goes to 0 (from both directions) and when x gets very negative
