    yes because that will get you \[\sqrt{64\cos ^{2}\theta }\]

    The expression will be kind of messy, I think. You'll have to integrate it by parts. Do you know how to do that?

    Yeah we passed that section. I just am not super familiar with it. but could you just write the expression I'm supposed to integrate by parts so I make sure everything is correct up to that point

    Actually I think I spaced out a bit. I'm just getting \(\int d\theta\)

    no the answer is something weird \[\frac{ x }{ 2 }\sqrt{64-x ^{2}}+32\sin^{-1} (\frac{ x }{ 8 })+C\]

    Ok, that looks like the result of integration by parts after all. So how did you get that? :D

    So what did you @MATTW20 let x=?

    Oh I see you let x=8sin(theta) and then you said dx=8cos(theta) d theta Just plug into your expression.

    \[\int\limits_{}^{}\sqrt{64\cos^2(\theta) } 8 \cos(\theta) d \theta \] That is what you have got so far, right?

    \[\int\limits_{}^{}8 \cos(\theta) \cos(\theta) d \theta ,\text{ assuming } \cos(\theta)>0\] so we have that we are trying to evaluate: \[8\int\limits_{}^{}\cos^2(\theta) d \theta \] The double angle identity comes in use for integating cos^2(theta) and even sin^2(theta)

    \[put x=8\sin \theta ,dx=8\cos \theta d \theta \] \[I=\int\limits \sqrt{64-64\sin ^{2}\theta} 8\cos \theta d \theta =32\int\limits 2\cos ^{2}\theta d \theta\] \[=32\int\limits \left( 1+\cos 2\theta \right)d \theta=32\left( \theta+\frac{ \sin 2\theta }{2 } \right)+c\] |dw:1381785998999:dw| \[I=32\left( \theta+\frac{ 2\sin \theta \cos \theta }{ 2 } \right)+c\] \[I=32\left( \sin^{-1} \frac{ x }{8 }+\frac{ x }{8 }*\cos \frac{ \sqrt{64-x ^{2}} }{8 } \right)+c\]

    \[\cos(2\theta)=\cos^2(\theta)-\sin^2(\theta)=\cos^2(\theta)-(1-\cos^2(\theta))\] \[\cos(\theta)=\cos^2(\theta)-1+\cos^2(\theta)=2\cos^2(\theta)-1\] Solve for cos^2(theta) This is just the way I remember this formula. I remember other formulas and derive other formulas from the ones I have memorized. \[\frac{1}{2}(\cos(\theta)+1)=\cos^2(\theta) \]
