Recall that . To see this, make the sub , this forms a sort of reverse chain rule.

You can apply this reasoning to each of the questions, though in some it may be easier to recall the special case of the above:

1 - Use

2 - Top is differential of the bottom, I assume you know what to do here

3 - Top is the differential of the bottom.

4 - Use
4. you can use "changing the variable" in all of these questions...

i) new variable = x2 - 1

ii) new variable = ex

iii) new variable = sinx + 1

iv) new variable = sinx

For the first and fourth, the way you know how to choose the substitution is to make u equal the inside of the bracket (or what is in effect a bracket).

In the fourth one, sin^2 x is the same as (sin x)^2 so the inside of the bracket is sin x.
