integral x^3(sqrt(16-x^2)dx can someone check if my answer is right, (-1024/3)((sqrt(16-x^2)/(3)))^3+(1024/5)((sqrt(16-x^2)/(3)))^5+C

    May I ask what method of integration you chose?

    first i used trig. sub. a-x^2, gives x=4sintheta, and then i used trig. integral of u-sub.

    you could have done this with just an algebraic substitution

    \[u=16-x^2 => du=-2x dx \] \[x^2=16-u \] So \[\int\limits_{}^{}x^2 \sqrt{16-x^2} dx=\frac{-1}{2}\int\limits_{}^{}x^2 \sqrt{16-x^2} (-2x) dx\] \[=\frac{-1}{2}\int\limits_{}^{}(16-u) \sqrt{u} du \] \[=\frac{-1}{2}\int\limits_{}^{}(16 u^\frac{1}{2}-u^\frac{3}{2}) du\]

    but it's x^3, not x^2

    I missed an x in that first part but and that next equation you see i have x^2 times x which is x^3

    Did you find P(x) as a 2nd degree taylor polynomial yet?

    \[P(x) \approx P(r)+P'(r)(x-r)+\frac{1}{2}P''(r)(x-r)^2 \] This is what they want you to use.

    They want you to use r as 5 and plug in the values they gave you for P'(5) and P''(5) Then they want you to find P(5.5) approximately using the resulting equation

    so for 5, i got p5(x)=120000-40000(x-5)+22500(x-5)^2, is this right so far?

    \[P(x)=45000+\frac{45000}{120000}(x-5)+\frac{1}{2} \frac{45000}{-40000}(x-5)^2 \]

    We are given \[P(5)=45000; \text{ and } 120000 \cdot P'(5)=45000 ; \text{ and } -40000 \cdot P''(5)=45000\]

    That is how I got what was P'(5) and P''(5) and P(5)

    We will use that P I wrote to approximate the value of portfolio bonds when r is 5.5.

    but how will it turn the equation into just 1 number?solve for x?

    \[P(x) \approx 120000-40000(x-5)+45000(x-5)^2 \] You can find P(5.5) It will result in one number

    It is just like if i asked you to evaluate f(2) given f(x)=x-5 you would say f(2)=2-5=-3
