Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sorry i am new took me a while to type the equation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0we can take out the constant "8" right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0or do we want to use it later... if u = 4x^2 +1 ; then du = 8x dx dx = du/8x

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and x would equal... sqrt(u1)/2...not sure if that helps us tho...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well, this is supposed to be solved by using trig substitution. like,let 2x=tan\[\theta\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\int\limits{} \frac{2}{8u^2 \sqrt{u1}} du\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0we can try it by trig substitution....a little rusty, but why not :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.04x^2 = tan^2(t) 2x = tan(t) ok

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0tan^2 + 1 = sec^2 sec^2^2 = sec^4 right?

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.01/sec^4 = cos^4 right?

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then when we pull out the 8 we get: [S] cos^4(t) dt to solve.... or did I miss somehting...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it looks good to me :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wait, how did you get 4x^2 = tan^2t

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what i have after solving is cos^2t

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I simply defined it as such; since its a substitution, with the same value its good right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0tan(t) = 2x > t = tan^1(2x)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well, my teachet said a^2x^2 : let x=asint a^2+x^2: x=atant and so on

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the value doesnt change, only the form it takes

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if we have something under a radical, then we want to substitute it with: asin(t) so that the "a" gets changed to a good value that can be taken away... there is no radical here to worry about so we dont have to worry about what "a" needs to be right?

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what we need here is not to get rid of a radical sign; but to transform it from one form to another.... we need tan^2 to equal 4x^2, the only way thats possible is to have tan = 2x

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but I tend to miss something whenever I do this...that dt in the problem is not simply "dt" it is dt = something dx....and thats what I need to find lol

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0tan(t) = 2x D (tan(t)) =D (2x) sec^2(t) dt = 2 dx dx = sec^2(t) dt/2 is what I should have... right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i will show u what i have. i just have problem at last

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so we end up with: 4 [S] cos^4 sec^2 dt

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.04 [S] cos^2(t) dt is what it simplifies to.... im sure of it ;)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0cos^2 = 1 + sin^2..... and so on and so forth....

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0we can reduce the power by uing the cos(2t) equations...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes what i cant do is do the final definite substitution

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0cos(2t) = 2cos^2  1 1 + cos(2t) = 2cos^2 (1+cos(2t))/2 = cos^2 right?

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0[S] 1/2 dt + [S] cos(2t)/2 dt .... looking more doable?

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[4 \int\limits_{} \frac{1}{2} dt + \int\limits_{} \frac{\cos(2t)}{2}dt\]

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well that 4 times the whole lot of it :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the left side goes to 4t/2 = 2t what we need to do is concentrate in the right side...

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if we multiply it by 1 the value stays the same right?

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\int\limits_{} \frac{2}{2} * \frac{\cos(2t)}{2} dt\]

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0lets use this to our advantage and take out the constants that dont matter.... ok?\[4* \frac{1}{4} \int\limits_{} 2 \cos(2t)dt\]

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0D (sin(2t)) = 2 cos(2t) right?

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0very good :) make sure you keep track of the "4" we had and use it in both these integrals right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yea. the problem with me is the final part where we substiture value. cant figure that out

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so lets put up our solution as we have it so far...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0r\[F(x) = 2t + \sin(2t) + C\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wait, did we use pi/4 already?

amistre64
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i didnt; I dont trust myself enough to change the original interval yet, so I just convert it back to values of x :)

amistre64
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0we can use this the way it is...minus the +C of course if we change the original interval to match oour substitution...which it looks like you might have down with that pi/4..... we can use that if your confident in it; but I prefer to undo the substitution of our trig with the key I provided...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[2 \tan^{1}(2x) + \frac{4x}{4x^2+1}\] from [0, .5]

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if I did it right, my answer is 91 :)

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0my tan^1(1) came back as 45 instead of pi/4..... I might have to adjust for that :)

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(2+pi)/2 might be more appropriate....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.02.57 is about my answer .... any way to check it?

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.02(pi/4) + sin(2pi/4) = pi/2 + 1 = (2+pi)/2 same results as before
