Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0erm.... integral 4x/(1+x^2) = I Let 1+x^2 = t ...........(1) > 2x = dt/dx > 2x dx = dt ...........(2) Now I = integral 2 [2x dx / (1+x^2) ] = integral 2 [dt / t ] since from (2) = 2 [integral dt / t ] = 2 (ln t) +c = 2 ln(1+x^2) + c We have integral 1/t dt = ln t +c Therefore I = 2 ln(1+x^2) +c where ln is log to the base e https://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20110416060345AAVswO7

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you forgot log lol

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1then you should be done because you should have the integral of the log memorized

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so i did \[\int \log(2x+1)dx+\int \log(2x1)dx\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the answer given is : x log  4x^21  1/2 log  (2x1)/(2x+1)  .. will i get this answer this way ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i have no idea when you integrate you will get something then using the properties of the log you can change it in to many different forms don't get married to the answer in the book

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0because this exercise was about the problems of integral dx / (a^2_x^2) type

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i would say this integral looks nothing like that at all

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0satellite you assumed that the expression will take positive values only you need the absolute value theere

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i would say \[\int \log(4x^21)dx\] looks nothing like \[\int \frac{dx}{a^2x^2}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\int \log(x)dx=x\log(x)x\] so \[\int \log(2x+1)dx=\frac{1}{2}\left((2x+1)\log(2x1)(2x+1)\right)\] by a mental u sub second part is similar

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@satellite73 , any reason why you took off absolute values?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1damn typo \[\int \log(2x+1)dx=\frac{1}{2}\left((2x+1)\log(2x+1)(2x+1)\right)\]

satellite73

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1or if you prefer \[\frac{1}{2}(2x+1)(\log(2x+1)1)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Whenever I see something that looks like \[\int\limits_{}^{}1 \cdot \ln(f(x)) dx \] one of my first instincts it to go with the integration by parts (assuming f>0) \[=x \ln(f(x))\int\limits_{}^{}x \frac{f'(x)}{f(x)} dx\]
