C4 - How would you integrate this? watch

1. ∫ 2 sin 3x sin 2x dx.

Multiple methods pls and the simplest way
thanks !
2. Can be done by parts or use of factor formulae. ie. .
3. This was the markscheme way of doing it: = ∫ (cos x − cos 5x) dx
idk how they went from the original integral to this....
4. Look at my post above

Ah... why have I never seen this formulae before :/

Look at my post above
Is the formula given (Edexcel) or do I have to memorise that *cries* or can I derive it in an exam?

You can derive it but it's easier just to remember it. There's 4 factor formula's you need to know although apparently it's not tested the factor formulae. But best to know I think.

Ah they're given in the formula book yesss, thanks a bunch dude would never have known about them :/ kinda scary

9. I got it using a triple angle formula, a double angle formula then a substitution. It should be pretty simple from here
∫ 2 sin 3x sin 2x dx.

Just to add, have a look at your formula booklet (online). For Edexcel I suspect that it is in C3.
