Example Questions

Example Question #9 : Definition Of Integral

Evaluate:

Possible Answers:

Correct answer:

Explanation:

Evaluating this integral requires use of the "Product to Sum Formulas of Trigonometry":

For:

So for our given integral, we can rewrite like so:

This can be rewritten as two separate integrals and solved using a simple substitution.

Solving each integral individually, we have:

Substituting this into the integral results in:

The other integral is solved the same way:

Substituting this into the integral results in:

Now combining these two statements together results in one of the answer choices:

Example Question #10 : Definition Of Integral

Evaluate:

Possible Answers:

Correct answer:

Explanation:

This integral can be easily evaluated by following the rules outlined for integrating powers of sine and cosine.

But first a substitution needs to be made:

Now that we've made this substitution, we will use the rules outlined for integrating powers of sine and cosine:

In General:

1. If "m" is odd, then we make the substitution , and we use the identity .

2. If "n" is odd, then we make the substitution , and we use the identity .

For our given problem statement we will use the first rule, and alter the integral like so:

Now we need to substitute back into v:

Now we need to substitute back into u, and rearrange to make it look like one of the answer choices:
