Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Suppose you have the following: \[ F(x) = \int_a^{g(x)}f(t)dt \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So @mathg8 , so far in my class we have only solved problems with one of the limits of integration being an expression, and one would be a constant (ie 3), how would this differ.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You would have to split the integral at some constant (say a)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Then suppose : \[ H(y) = \int_a^yf(t)dt \]Notice that \(H(y) = H(g(x)) = F(x)\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3By the fundamental theorem: \[ \frac{d}{dy}H(y) = f(y) = f(g(x)) \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\frac {d}{dx} \int\limits\limits_{\cos 3x}^{\tan 3x} \sqrt{1+t^2}dt = \frac {d}{dx} \int\limits\limits_{\cos 3x}^{a} \sqrt{1+t^2}dt+\frac {d}{dx} \int\limits\limits_{a}^{\tan 3x} \sqrt{1+t^2}dt\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1If you know how to work with an expression other than just "x" on the upper integration bound, then you should have no problem computing it the way I presented it by splitting your integral into 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Basically we have: \[ \frac{d}{dy}F(x) = f(g(x)) \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If you have f(x) = integral of f(t) from a to g(x), and y=g(x), and \[H(y)=\int\limits_{a}^{y}f(t)dt\] Then we can see that H(y)=H(g(x)) because of the fact that y=g(x) (Not quite sure how H(y)=H(g(x)) though) @wio

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3When we say \(y=g(x)\) we're just saying they are interchangeable.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3The reason I did that was to make it so you can see that a function is sort of just like a variable.

wio

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3also there is a difference between \(F(x)\) and \(f(x)\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Sorry, my reply was written wrong. Let me restate it.

Argonx16
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I can see that H(y) = H (g(x)) (y=g(x)), but I /don't/ see how H(y)=F(x) (or H(g(x)=F(x))

wio

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3It's the transitive property of equality. \[ H(y)=\int\limits_{a}^{y}f(t)dt = \int\limits_{a}^{g(x)}f(t)dt =F(x) \]I'm not saying they are the same function though. I'm just saying they are equal.

wio

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Look if you want, just ignore \(H(y)\). If I said: \[ F(x)=\int\limits_{a}^{y}f(t)dt \]Do you understand that by the fundamental theorem: \[ \frac{d}{dy}F(x) = f(y) \]

Argonx16

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok, I see what you did to make F(x)=H(y)=H(g(x)) And, yes I understand the second fundamental theorem.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Now the trick here is to multiply both sides by \(dy/dx\) \[ \frac{d}{dy}F(x) \frac{dy}{dx} = f(y)\frac{dy}{dx} \]

wio

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3By the chain rule: \[ \frac{d}{dy}F(x) \frac{dy}{dx} = \frac{d}{dx}F(x) = f(y)\frac{dy}{dx} \]

wio

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3@Argonx16 this is sort of the tricky part, but do you get it?

wio

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Another way to write this is: \[ \frac{dF(x)}{dy}\frac{dy}{dx} = \frac{dF(x)}{dx} \]Or \[ \frac{dF}{dy}\frac{dy}{dx} = \frac{dF}{dx} \]

Argonx16

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes I got the chain rule step (esp after you rewrote it in a different way).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3So we got:\[ \frac{d}{dx}F(x) = \frac{d}{dx}\int\limits_{a}^{y}f(t)dt = \frac{d}{dx}\int\limits_{a}^{g(x)}f(t)dt \]And: \[ f(y)\frac{dy}{dx} = f(g(x))\frac{dg(x)}{dx} = f(g(x))g'(x) \]

wio

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Putting it all together: \[ \frac{d}{dx} \left[ \int\limits_{a}^{g(x)}f(t)dt \right] = f(g(x))g′(x) \]

wio

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3\[ \frac {d}{dx} \int\limits_{\cos 3x}^{\tan 3x} \sqrt{1+t^2} = \frac {d}{dx} \int\limits_{z}^{\tan 3x} \sqrt{1+t^2} \frac {d}{dx} \int\limits^{\cos 3x}_{a} \sqrt{1+t^2} \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3To expand on the earlier realization: \[ \frac{d}{dx} \left[ \ \int\limits_{h(x)}^{g(x)}f(t)dt \right] = f(g(x))g′(x) f(h(x))h'(x) \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes! @wio Thanks for spending so much time helping me on this! I know how much patience/time/effort it takes to help so in depth, so I am very appreciative of your help :D

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yeah. It definitely helps so much more. OS is also a good way to retain math concepts taught earlier :D
