Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2opss.. u = 2+tan1/2 t, i meant :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2u = 2 + tan1/2 t du = 0 + 1/2 sec^2 1/2 t dt right ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0When deciding what to make your substitution with, you should consider what in the integral has its derivative in there too. This sort of is the process of reversing the chain rule. In this case you should remember that the derivative of tangent is secant squared.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so where did u get that 1/2 from? I did not get it, sorry

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0In the same way 4/2 is equal to 4*(1/2)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2by using the chain rule : if y=tanAx then y'=A*sec^2 Ax

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Assuming this is right, you need to remember that the problem you were given to solve had no "u" in it at all, so you must plug in "u" back to the equation to get it in terms of "x".

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so is that ( tan 1/2 t)^2 ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2(2 + tan 1/2 t)^2 now, plug and calculate for t = 0 and t =pi/2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(2 + tan 1/2 (0))^2  (2 + tan 1/2 (pi/2))^2 = (2+tan(0))^2  (2+tan(pi/4)^2 = (2+0)^2  (2  tan(pi/4))^2 = 4  (2  1)^2 = 4  1 = 3 if i dont make mistake :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and where do i put te integral sign ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0just remember that int (f(x)) dx [a,b] = [F(x)] [a,b] = F(b)F(a) after u integrate it, u got (2 + tan 1/2 t)^2 right ? now, substitute for highest interval (t=0) and then subtract with for t=pi/4 (low interval)
