    Here, i hope you get this, i've been doing a lot of problems since this morning, and i'm tired out, not really in an explaining mood anymore. that being said, it's a good idea that you check my computations

    we are told F(1) = 0
    so i plugged in 1 for x in F(x) and then equated that answer to 0. i solved for C from that. i'll fill it in

    there, i filled in the extra steps, do you see now?

    If you get a chance can you please look at the other problem I have up. I've been looking in the book but im still lost. No explanation is necessary I can try and figure out the explanation on my own. Thanks!
