how to calulate this :

it seems easy but i wonder how it is tricky to solve it.

i planned several approaches but all of them failed. i think the answer should be someting similar to .(Headbang)

yeah;

that was cool solution.

it was realy nice for me to use double integral trick and then benefit from solving the problem in Polar Coordinates that was undeniably easy.

so the answer is : - Oct 23rd 2008, 07:46 PMJhevon

And how do you know that ?

Here is a few other ways.

**1.**

Consider

Find

Let

Show that

Integrate this latter formula.

Find an expression for with respect to f(x).

Show that

Conclude :

Since the integrand is even,

**2.**

Show that

Deduce that

Integrate the previous inequality and make substitutions to get, :
