    Substitution with integration

    i finally found my error. I understand the basics(for the most part) of integration. It is the substitution and the more sophisticated equations that get me.

    Substitution with integration

    I cannot believe this, same problem but it is /int 4_0. I'm sorry i missed that. To answer the question of what i am doing, first I have to figure out if this is something i can use the fund. rules of integrals or something i have to (or is preferred) substitute the function. For this one, i...

    Substitution with integration

    I did this: u^(1/2)/(1/2). 2u^(1/2) 2(2t+4)^(1/2) (4t+8)^1/2 (12t)^(1/2) 2(3)^(1/2) I believe I am further off than the first time.

    Definite integration

    that was pretty much it. did u put x^3 on top? or did you left the x^3 on the bottom? Because i believe that was my problem on this one.

    Reverse diferentiation problem

    Now I know what I did wrong now, I just put x^-4 on top instead of subtracting the lower from the upper which I should have done. Thanks glenn

    L'hopital's rule

    I now get the infin. multiplication part now. also, f'(x)=ln(x) g'(x)=x^5 was meant to be: f'(x)=ln(x) ----------- g'(x)=x^5 Thanks

    L'hopital's rule

    For 1. I would have to apply l'hopital's again because it is still 0/0. So, it would be(2-2cos(2x))/(4xcos2x+2sin2x). It is still 0/0 so i have to derive one more time. It would be 4sin2x/4xcos2x+4cos2x. Apply the 0 and got 0/4 = 0. Did I do this right now? 2. a. The limit of ln(x) is -infin...

    Huge problem with relation rates.

    Homework Statement I search all over my textbook and did not show any (simple) examples on relation rates(seriously). Well, The first problem is, x^2+y^2=25 find dy/dt when x=3. dx/dt =4 and it says find the indicated rate and assume x>0 and y>0 Homework Equations I did my best...

    Implicit differentiation

    I don't know if I got this right. I used the product rule: (x)(y(x))'+(x)'(y(x)) and for derivitive of y(x), I used the chain rule to find the derivitive. And got(x)(1*x*x)+(x)(y(x)). -> x^3+xy(x)d/dx=0 What else am I doing wrong?

    Implicit differentiation

    Homework Statement I just got started on this, and am not grasping the WHOLE idea. 1.xy=25 The answer says -y/x 2.x^2+3xy+y^2=15 And this says -y^2/x^2 Homework Equations 1. dy/dx(xy)= dy/dx(25) 1=0 ??? 2.dy/dx x^2+3xy+y^2= dy/dx 15 2x+3+y(dy/dx) =0...

    Finding the equation for the tangent line.

    Homework Statement find the equation for the tangent line. 1. (e^x)(cos x) where x=0 Homework Equations plugged 0 into the equation, (e^0)(cos 0) and got 1 for the y-coordinate. so I got the points(0,1). For the slope, I derived the equation into -(e^x)(sin x). then i plugged 0 in and got 0...

    I think I get what u 2 are saying... since sec^2-tan^2 equals 1, it would be 1+cosx, take the derivative and I get -sinx?

    For 1, I am really not seeing how it becomes sin2t from 2sinx cosx. For 2, I got it right, it was the derivative of e^2x that messed me up. thanks cristo. For 3, I know ultimately the third term will be left and the other two will cancel each other out. This is what i got(by following the...

    Derivitives of Trig.

    For 1. I tried the chain rule(sin x inside, square outside), and it got me 2cos(t) which is worse than my first answer. For 2. I assumed e never changes. And I never came across a problem where e changes and I am not too sure on how to do that. Is it 2 e^1? For 3. If I am understanding this...

    Derivitive problems

    actually that is what I was trying to say, didn't know how to write it. now I am aware the h cancels, for it to be, 5/(sqrt 5x+5h +sqrt5x). I know I cannot add (sqrt 5x+5h +sqrt5x) together because it is not like. If I am wrong about that, let me know. Am I suppose to distribute it back? I don't...
