FoolForMath Group Title

Fool's problem of the day, Wonderful Integrals: 1. Evaluate: \( \huge \int \frac{\sin x}{\sqrt{1+\sin x}} \) 2. Prove \( \huge \int \limits_{0}^{\frac \pi 2}\frac{x}{\sin x+\cos x}dx = \frac{\pi}{2\sqrt{2}} \ln (\sqrt{2} +1) \) 3. Prove \( \int \limits_{0} ^1 \sqrt{(1+x)(1+x^3)} \; dx \le \sqrt{\frac{15}{8}} \) 4. Let \( a,b, c \) be non-zero real numbers, such that \( \int \limits_{0} ^1 (1+ \cos ^8 x)(ax^2 bx +c) \; dx = \int \limits_{0} ^2 (1+ \cos ^8 x)(ax^2 bx +c) \; dx \). Then show that the quadratic equation \( ax^2 +bx+c=0\) has one root in \( (1,2) \) [Solved by @Mr.Math] PS: First two are probably very easy! ;) @TuringTest Time for you solve my problem of the day! Between I would only accept all the solutions from you ;) Good luck!

    @TuringTest: The first 2 are somewhat standard trick. The other two require NOT so standard trick ;)

    I'm just getting used to the ideas of changing bounds in problems like these, so I'm clumsy with that trick. It is my initial idea though

    so far for the first I have\[\int{\sin x\over\sqrt{\sin x+1}}dx\]\[u=1+\sin x\implies \sin x=u-1\]\[du=\cos xdx=(1-\sin^2x)^{1/2}dx=(1-(u-1)^2)^{1/2}dx=(2u-u^2)^{1/2}dx\]therefor\[dx={du\over(2u-u^2)^{1/2}}\]

    so\[\int{u-1\over u^{1/2}(2u-u^2)^{1/2}}du\]and I'm thinking by parts since \[(2u-u^2)'=-2(1-u)\]let's se...

    I will do the fourth problem. Let \(f(x)=\int_0^x (1+\cos^8(t))(at^2+bt+c)dt\). Then, by the mean value theorem, there exists a point \(\alpha\) in \((1,2)\) such that: \(f'(\alpha)=\frac{f(2)-f(1)}{2-1}\). But \(f(2)=f(1) \implies f'(\alpha)=0\). Thus \((1+\cos^8(\alpha))(a\alpha^2+b\alpha+c)=0 \implies a\alpha^2+b\alpha+c=0\), since \(1+\cos^8(\alpha)\) has no real zeros in \((1,2)\).

    my method seems not to work, and I have to go again I am completely foiled by your problems FFM, though they are on one of my favorite topics :( some day though, some day...

    There is property which makes things much easy for #4. If \( f(x) \) is continuous on [a,b] and \( \int \limits_{a}^{b} f(c)=0\); then equation f(x)=0 has at-least one real root in (a,b).

    This property is nothing but a direct corollary of the mean value theorem.

    For the third problem, I haven't yet found the boundary you gave for the integral. The least upper bound I found so far is \(\frac{3}{2}\).

    Although, trivial lol! For the fourth one there is a inequality which you can use.

    Want to solve\[\int\limits {\sin x \over \sqrt{1+\sin x}}\quad dx\]Let \(u=\sqrt{1+\sin x}\). Then we have the relation \(\sin x =u^2-1\). From this, we get that \(\sin^2 x = u^4-2u^2+1\). This means that \(\cos^2(x) = -u^4+2u^2\) so \(\cos x =\sqrt{-u^4+2u^2}\)
