Hello The Power!

Huh? Is it ? Because I think it should be

It would be better, if you first calculate

=>

and then you substitute t = 0, so you solve F(0) = 2 to solve for c.

Do you know integration by substitution?

Use the substitution z = t^2... That would work.

Thanks Rapha!

Im currently learning how to do substitution is it quite tricky because at first I made u = -t^2 and do i not know when to solve for du = some derivative dx completely for dx if you can make any sense of that

In this case C = 2 so its

2 + integral

So how do I obtain a value for F(1) somehow the book retrieved the answer numerically of 2.747

I wish the book would state this but sadly they do not I should just skip through those type of problems because calculators are not allowed on test
