    Hiya

    I was just doing q2 and has just gotten to the part where I subbed in the values to get it all in terms of u, but disaster struck when du was wildly in the middle of the equation.

    So, my question is is it the same as having du at the end of the equation as it is multiplied or have I just gotten in to a complete mess?

    Also: I have just realised that there should be brackets around the  e^2 -e

    Yes, I think you're fine, you can just move the du over to the end if you wish (don't forget the -!)

    So is this right?

    The du being multiplied by a certain part is stressing me out

    Should be fine, just don't forget that e^u is being multiplied by (e-e^2), you may make a mistake as your brackets aren't always there.

    I think there is an equal missing in the printed question.

    Ok so Ive dont it and all I belive there is a misprint in the question they forgot the = signt after the dx so actually du is not in a middle of an equation there is an equal sign after the du so you need show how when u integrate you will get e(e-1).

    So techniclly you will inegrate -eu which is the same -eu that is the same as -ecos(X)+1 it will eventually give you the same answer just try it out. hope that is what u were asking?

    Ah okay after a few minutes googling this question. It turns out this question was printed like this, but you're right, there's supposed to be an equals sign between dx and e(e-1)

    Thank you all for your help!

    I shall be notifying my teacher and complaining that she failed to check the homework

    Okay sorry but same (corrected) question, new problem. I now have this with the negative respect to u, would I just multiply everything by -1/take it out as a factor?

    Also, this is just a proving question right? so showing that the first part is the same as e(e-1) or would I need to integrate it as well?

    It's just -1 * du so you can move the -1 outside the integral if you want as it is a constant.

    Also, it's asking you to evaluate it so... that should answer your question

    The question is wrong, it seems. There should be an = sign after the dx.

    You don't integrate the e(e-1) part, you're just proving that the first part can be written as that in the end

    i tried proving it but i just ended up with e^cosx+1/sinx + x not e(e-1) im probably doing something wrong
