# easy integration question watch

1. Integrate

This is what I did:

1. wrote it out differently
2. added one to the power and then divided by the new power.
3. simplified it to that

But the mark scheme tells me it's this??

2. divide by differential of (4x+1)

But if you differentiate your answer you get which is not what you started with. Also, you need +c.

Anyway, you forgot to take into account that the coefficient of x comes into play.

Just use substitution and see where you get with it.
4. Since the bracket is (ax+1), when integrating, you have to multiply your integral by 1/a. Hence the answer being the same as yours but divided by 4.
5. Omg, thank you so so much. I need to be way more careful from now on.
(wanted to rep RDKGames but it said I've repped you too recently)
6. Have to use chain rule in reverse, so divide by 1/2 but also divide by the differential of the brackets.
7. (4x+1)^-1/2= (4x+1)^1/2 when integrated

Differentiate the new (4x+1)1/2
to get 1/2(4x+1)^1/2

Look up examsolutions reverse chain rule for help

Look at this for example
