for 0<x<1 f(x) = 0 for 1<x< 1.5 f(x) = 1 so its just 1/2 ?

can we do it like this,breaking the integral in 3 parts from 0 to 1 >> the value inside integral is 0 from 1 to root (2) >> the value inside integral is 1 and from root2 to 1.5 >> the value inside integral is 2 so the answer is $$(2^\frac{1}{2}1) +2(1.52^\frac{1}{2})$$ = $$22^\frac{1}{2}$$

No, we don't need electronic aid. I should have applied my head root2 is around 1.4 I think, less than 1.5. Or a better way is to check at which points the function gets to 2. If its less than 1.5 you split it. maybe

Using Stom's work, I'm getting \[(2^{1/2}1)+2({3/2}2^{1/2})=2^{1/2}1+32^{3/2}\]So we have \[2+(2^{1/2}2^{3/2})=22^{1/2}=2\sqrt2\] Which is just what Stom had.

Isn't that just \(\int\limits_{0}^{1} 0dx+ \int\limits_{1}^{\sqrt{2}}dx+\int\limits_{\sqrt{2}}^{\frac{3}{2}}2dx=(\sqrt{2}1)+2(\frac{3}{2}\sqrt{2})=2\sqrt{2}\)?

Since \(⌊x^2⌋=0 \text{ for } x \in (0,1), ⌊x^2⌋=1 \text{ for } x\in (1,\sqrt{2}) \text{ and }⌊x^2⌋=2 \text{ for } x\in (\sqrt{2},\frac{3}{2}). \)
