Perhaps this is an easy question watch

1. If is

What would these be?

I'm trying to integrate from 0, 1 and the y axis, but the equations i get are like that so i have to make x the subject
2. => (for the principal value of x, anyway).
3. try taking ln on both sides to simplify
4. You just 'switch' like you did at the start.

y = x^n --> x = y^1/n.

Just do 1/sqrt3, 1/pi, etc.

Nah, that's overkill.

Nothing better than logs though.

I disagree, I prefer simple harmonic motion. Or sex. (Or a combination of the two, come to think of it.)

I'm sure, if I was bored enough, I could prove that when sex gets going it satisfies the equation for simple harmonic motion.

Well, probably, if you can assume that .

Assumed.
11. And I thought I was good at getting tangents =P
