1. ## Integrals and Sigma

Hello I need help with 2 problems.

The first is
Code:
F(x)= Integral from sqrt(x) to 2  (tan(t)/t^2) dt     Find F'(x)

The second is
Code:
Find the actual area under the curve f(x)=2x^2 on the interval [0,3]. Use right hand endpoints and the formula
Area = lim n→ ∞   n Σ i=1    f(x^*i) delta(x)

Here is an image of the equations

2. ## Re: Integrals and Sigma

For the first part, I would perform the following transformation:

\displaystyle \displaystyle \begin{align*} \int_2^{\sqrt{x}}{\frac{\tan{(t)}}{t^2}\,dt} &= \frac{1}{2}\int_2^{\sqrt{x}}{\frac{2t\tan{(t)}}{t^ 3}\,dt} \end{align*}

Let \displaystyle \displaystyle \begin{align*} u = t^2 \implies du = 2t\,dt \end{align*} and changing the bounds gives

\displaystyle \displaystyle \begin{align*} \frac{1}{2} \int_4^x { \frac{ \tan{ \left( \sqrt{u} \right) } }{ u^{\frac{3}{2}} }\,du } \end{align*}

Then you can make use of the Second Fundamental Theorem of Calculus.

For the second, you have been given a formula to use. Where exactly are you stuck?

Okay thanks ill take another look at the first problem and for the second problem the equation confuses me. What does the x*i mean?

\displaystyle \displaystyle \begin{align*} x^*_i \end{align*} is just a shorthand to give a label to each value of x.

5. ## Re: Integrals and Sigma

Okay I get problem 2 all the way up to this point

What is the n^3/3 + ...
