$x^2\sqrt{x}$

$\left(\begin{array}{cc}1\\1\\1\end{array}\right)$ = $\left(\begin{array}{cc}2x\\-2y\\0\end{array}\right)\lambda$ $+$ $\left(\begin{array}{cc}2\\0\\1\end{array}\right)$ $\mu$

$so\ \mu=1$

$\left(\begin{array}{cc}2x\\-2y\\0\end{array}\right)\lambda$ = $\left(\begin{array}{cc}-1\\-1\\0\end{array}\right)$

$So\ \lambda \neq 0$

$\frac{1}{\lambda} = -2x$

$\frac{1}{\lambda} = -2y$

$-2x = -2y, and\ x = y$

$BUT x^2 - y^2 = 1???$

Use \phantom{-} in front of the positive terms of your matrices and it will line everything up for you...

6. ## Re: test

$u = -x^2$

$du = -2xdx$

$\frac{-1}{2}du = xdx$

Now, substitute in $\frac{-1}{2}du\ for\ xdx$.

Pull that 5 out to get $\frac{-5}{2}$ outside the integral.

It's cake from there...
