    Hi Guys

    The picture attached is the mark scheme of a Fp3 past paper Q4 June 2010. I don't understand the first line, that why it's is a + sign rather than a - sign in the middle of the equation? I know this integrate by part, according to the by part formulae, I think it should be a -sign. Can anyone explain to me thanks.

    Differentitate (a-x)^n and you get -n(a-x)^n-1 not n(a-x)^n-1
    remember the bit inside the bracket gets differentitated as well
