    A strange integration problem

    Hi!

    I have a problem here. I really hope someone will help me!

    I have a function that could be derivated two times. The function is like this:
    1) f(pi) = 2.
    2) the definite integral from 0 to pi is ( f(x) + f ''(x) )*sin(x) dx = 5.

    Find f(0).

    (...by using integration by parts.)


    (I'm really sorry that I still don't manage LaTeX, but I'll learn it as soon as possible...)

    it's a straightforward problem.

    just split up the integral into two pieces and integrate by parts the second one, once done, do it again and you'll be able to solve your problem.
