    For ln((1+x)/(1-x)) it would need to be ln(1+x) - ln(1-x) but I'm not getting B = minus (number)

    Where am I messing up?

    you should get ln |u| = -ln |1 - x2| + c for part i) then make u the subject.

    your problem is the integral of 1/{2{ 1 - x } }... it is -1/2*ln { 1 - x }, not + 1/2*ln { 1 - x }

    u = A /1-x^2 is the solution it says u = dy/dx

    so dy/dx = A / 1-x^2 I meant to find the solution from that I don't get how

    all of your working is fine up until the integral of 1/{2{1-x}} where you missed off the minus sign.

    if you integrate 1/( 1 - x ) you get - ln | 1 - x | NOT ln | 1 - x |
