Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0let u=2x so du=2dx or \(\large \frac{1}{2}du=dx \) so, \(\large \int_{1}^{1}e^{2x}dx=\int_{2}^{2}e^udu=e^u_{2}^{2}= \) ???

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oops... there should be a factor of 1/2 outside of that second integral.....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So the limits do change..... was curious about that.... So it should be.... 27.2899172?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0this is what it should look like: \(\large \int_{1}^{1}e^{2x}dx=\frac{1}{2}\int_{2}^{2}e^udu=\frac{1}{2}e^u_{2}^{2}=\frac{1}{2}(e^2e^{2})=\frac{1}{2}(\frac{e^41}{e^2})=\frac{e^41}{2e^2} \) that's the exact form.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0..... isn't u standing in for "2x".... therefore it would be e^4  e^(4)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes it is but we made a usubstitution that enables us to evaluate the integral in terms of u so we use 2 and 2 as the lower/upper limits of integration

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if you wanted to back substitute so you could use x , then the limits would not change.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0....Pretty sure in class, even when making u substitutions, we always would convert back to x form after integrating, keeping the new limits of the integral, and substituting those numbers in for x....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Fun fact: did you know you can actually perform definite integrals in scientific calculators?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Uh, yeah.... but when I do it by hand I'm not getting the right answer. And I have to show my work as though I did it by hand.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Since this is a definite integral, the answer is numeric. so i don't see why you would back substitute back to x if we already made the transition from x to u. But either way, the numeric answer should be the same if you did a back subsitution to x or used the new limits involving u.
