    Hi everyone :wavey:

    June is fast approaching which means that the C3 exam is getting closer. The "Last Minute" threads were popular last year so we're bringing them back for 2018!

    This thread is a place to ask any C3 question you have so whatever your question, please post it here and someone will be able to help you out This could be an exam question from AQA, Edexcel, OCR or it could just be a general question about a particular topic.

    When posting a question, make sure you post your attempt so that helpers know where you're stuck and can help you faster.

    You can look through last year's thread which may help with your revision.

    Probably really simple but slightly confused what they've done here! (This is Q5 from June 2017):

    I understand it all apart from how they managed to get 3x+10 on the top? When I work it out I get x = ln(10/(3x+1)) so basically missing that 3x on the top!

    Any help appreciated, thanks!

    So are you saying you don't understand how they got from the second to the third line? If not, it's probably best if you post your working.

    Try this video. If you can follow this method then it's the same method for inverse cos and tan. Or you could try learning them off-by-heart but it is quite late

    Does anyone know how to find the range of g(X) when g(X)=x/(x-3) and x>3. It's only 2 marks and the mark scheme doesn't show any working. Thanks

    This is an improper fraction so you can split it using a division method e.g. long division. If you do that you get

    1+\frac{3}{x-3}

    Does that help?

    domain = input (x values)

    range = output (y values)

    Weird but how I remember it is you hit golf balls into the driving 'range' so this is the output and then input x values to get y values so match them up accordingly. Hope this makes sense.

    For \frac{x^2\ln x}{3} first take out the \frac{1}{3} so you just have to differentiate x^2\ln x. Now try to use the product rule for x^2 and \ln x. Post your working if you get stuck.
