    first and second theorem

    Given a function g, continue to any x in R : g(1)=5 and the Integral of g(t)dt=2 in {0,1}

    If f(x)=1/2(Integral of(x-t)^2)g(t)dt) in {0,x}

    Prube that

    f'(x)=x(integral(g(t)dt- t·g(t)dt) in {0,x}

    then find f''(1) and f'''(1)

    Hey nigromante.

    Can you show us what you have tried (partial attempts are OK) as well as any ideas you have to solve the problem?

    Hint: Use the fundamental theorem of calculus to link f(x) with f'(x).

    Re: first and second theorem

    Nailed it, I know this threads been dead, but I got stuck on it at first glance:

    f(x)=\frac{1}{2}\int _0^x(x^2-2xt+t^2)g(t)dt =\frac{1}{2}[x^2\int _0^xg(t)dt-2x\int _0^xtg(t)dt+\int _0^xt^2g(t)dt]

    f'(x)=\frac{1}{2}[2x\int _0^xg(t)dt+x^2g(x)-2\int _0^xtg(t)dt-2x^2g(x)+x^2g(x)]=x\int _0^xg(t)dt-\int _0^xtg(t)dt

    Re: first and second theorem

    THanks, I get the same, but now I have a problem with the third derivate, on the second I get: f''(1)=Integrate of g(t)dt, {0,1}=2, but f'''(1) I think is zero, but it supose to be "5".
