Anyway, heres the problem
integrate (100-x^2)^(1/2) dx from 10-5
In order to save time, I eventually come to100 integrate cos(theta)^2
Then, I find that the integral of that is: (spaces for readability)
(x/2) + sin(2x)/4 +c
The question is, what exactly do I do with this? Im pretty sure I have to draw a right triangle and do something with it. I have the triangle drawn, with the hypotenuse being x, opposite being 10, and the adjacent being the original squared term (100-...)
