    Part A is a partial fractions question which doesn't require differentiation.
    Factorise the denominator and then solve as a partial fraction. (Actually I think partial fractions is C4 for Edexcel...)

    For the second part sub in the answer to part a and consider what 1/(x-1) can also be written as to make the differentiation easier.

    We also covered it after As exams (but in 2015) and that was why I wasn't 100% whether it was C4

    If its the same textbook as we used (and it looks like it could be... (joint textbook for C3 and C4 with a purple cover?)) its a generic textbook that has stuff for all of the exam boards and I think that partial fractions is in C3 for at least one exam board.
