3. If f has a discontinuity at c , where a < c < b , and both Z c a f ( x ) d x and Z b c f ( x ) d x are convergent, then we define Z b a f ( x ) d x = Z c a f ( x ) d x + Z b c f ( x ) d x 2.1 Example 1. Evaluate. Z 5 2 1 x - 2 d x Work: The integral is improper because the integrand has a vertical asymptote at x = 2. Z 5 2 1 x - 2 d x = lim t 2 + Z 5 t 1 x - 2 d x = lim t 2 + 2 x - 2 5 t = lim t 2 + 2 3 - t - 2 = 2 3 3 Comparison Theorems Comparison Theorem: Suppose f and g are continuous functions with f ( x ) g ( x ) 0 for x a . 1. If Z a f ( x ) d x is convergent, then Z a g ( x ) d x is convergent. 2. If Z a g ( x ) d x is divergent, then Z a f ( x ) d x is divergent. It is useful to note that we often use the following integral for comparison purposes: Z 1 1 x p d x. Here, it can be shown that this integral is convergent if p > 1 and divergent if p 1. 3

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
