Use the fact that the function is odd to show that the inequality is true. (Anyone who helps me will receive a medal because I'm stuck.)

    I already verified that the function is odd. I just need help showing that: \[0 \le \int\limits_{-2}^{3}\sin \sqrt[3]{x}dx \le 1\]

    Using the fact that the function is odd I know that\[0 \le \int\limits_{-2}^{3}\sin \sqrt[3]{x}dx \le 1 = 0 \le \int\limits_{2}^{3}\sin \sqrt[3]{x}dx \le 1\]

    Now, I just need to show that \[0 \le \int\limits_{2}^{3}\sin \sqrt[3]{x}dx \le 1\]

    is it like this \[\sin ^{2}(\sqrt{x}) ?\]

    It's actually\[\sin (\sqrt[3]{x})\] or \[\sin(x^{1/3})\]

    what did you get on this one? \[\int\limits_{}^{}\sin \sqrt{x}dx= --------------?\]

    \[= \cos \sqrt{x} + C\]Is that correct?

    no, you need to consider (x)^1/2=u,.....

    \[= -\cos \sqrt{x}+C\] Wouldn't that be it?

    if we let u=x^1/2 du=1/(2x^1/2)dx

    youll come up to = 2 sin x^1/2 -2 x^1/2 cos x^1/2 ] from 2 to 3

    is it from -2 to 3?

    Oh, okay. To begin with, it's from -2 to 3, but the integral from -2 to 0 and the integral from 0 to 2 cancel each other out this the function is odd and symmetric about the origin, so in its simplest form, the integral is from 2 to 3.

    do you have a calculator that does derivative and integrals? that way you can re check your work... :D
