1. ## TI-89 Integration

I've been using a TI-89 to check my work in my calc class, but I'm not sure how to enter one of the problems. It is:

integrate (from 0 to 16) (x^3 dx)/(x^2+32x+256)

I've never entered dx in the integrand before so is there a way to do it?

Note that $\displaystyle \int{\frac{x^3\,dx}{x^2 + 32x + 256}} = \int{\frac{x^3}{x^2 + 32x + 256}\,dx}$.

So just enter it as you normally would without the $\displaystyle dx$.

Get $\displaystyle \int($ from the F3 menue. Then:

$\displaystyle \int($ x^3/(x^2 + 32x + 256), x, 0, 16)

4. It's easier to just ban these from class
