integrate:-
1. integral (4x-x^2) ^ (1/2)from 0 to 4
i know that I should use completing the square
so i ended up with (-4-(x-2)^2)^(1/2)
however, it doesn't look right to me, May I get a helpful solution?

A certain radioactive isotope is observed to decay to 98% of its initial amount over ac) How long will it take the sample with initial mass of 100g to decay to a mass of 8g?
period of one year.
a) Assume that the sample has an initial mass of 100g. Find a function that represents
the mass of a sample as a function of time (in years).
b) What is the half-life of the isotope?

Find the Maclaurin series for the functions sinh(x) and cosh(x) by using the Maclaurin
series for ex and the de nitions of sinh(x) and cosh(x) in terms of ex. Compute the radius
of convergence for each series.
(a) Let Q(t) be the quantity of isotope, in g, after t years. Saying that it decays at a steady rate means that for some (negative) number k. Rewrite that as and integrate both sides. Solving for Q will give an equation involving ln(Q) which gives Q as an exponential function of t involving the unknown value k and the integration constant C.
Use the fact that Q(0)= 100 and Q(1)= .98(100)= 98 to find k and c.
(b)The "half life" is the time it take to decay to half the original amount. Since the original amount was 100 g, half is 50 g. Set the function in (a) equal to 50 and solve for t.
(c) Set the function you found in (a) equal to 8 and solve for t.
