Question 1. Please solve the following two problems.
sec2 x dx
Let u = tan
, so that du =
dx = 4u3 du = u4 + C = tan4
+ C, where C is an arbitrary
(b) Find the area of the region enclosed between the line y = −3 and the curve y = 2x − x2.
First we ﬁnd the points where the line and the curve intersect.
−3 = 2x − x2
x2 − 2x − 3 = 0
(x − 3)(x + 1) = 0 So the points of intersection occur at x = 3 and x = −1.
Now we need to determine whether the line or the curve has greater values on the entire interval (−1, 3). To do this, we evaluate both expressions at point in the interval; for simplicity
we pick x = 0. For the line we have a y-value of −3, and for the curve we have a y-value of
0. We conclude that the curve takes on greater values on the entire interval (−1, 3).
To ﬁnd the area, we compute
2x − x − (−3) dx =
2x − x + 3 dx = x − x + 3x = 10
−1 Math 1110 (Fall 2011) HW5 Presentation Problems 2 Question 2. Let f be a function that is differentiable on [a, b]. In Chapter 2 of our text, we deﬁned
the average rate of change of f over [a, b] to be
f(b) − f(a)
and the instantaneous rate of change of f at x to be f (x). In Chapter 5, we deﬁned the average
value of a function. For the new deﬁnition of average value to be consistent with the old one, we
f(b) − f(a)
= average value of f on [a, b].
Is this the case? Give reasons for your answer.
Using the deﬁnition in Chapter 5, the average value of on [a, b] is given by
f (x) dx.
f(b) − f(a)
Using the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus we see that this is equal to
, since f is an
on [a, b].
antiderivative of f
