Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[x^{2} + y^{2} = 1\] \[y = \sqrt{1x^{2}}\] this is top half of circle...integrate from 1 to 1 \[Area = 2\int\limits_{1}^{1}\sqrt{1x^{2}} dx = \pi\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0using trig substitution \[x = \sin u\] \[dx = \cos u\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0in the end you will just get pi =pi if you want to use this to get numerical approximation for pi, then integrate by computing area under curve using trapezoid rule or simpsons rule or something like that

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0why can we use trig sub? you can substitute anything you want to make the integral more manageable
