# Homework Help: F(3)=1/4 integration

f(3)=1/4

$$\int\frac{dy}{y}=\int (6-2x)dx$$
$$-\frac{1}{y}=6x-x^2+C$$
$$-4=18-9+C$$
$$C=-13$$
$$-\frac{1}{y}=6x-x^2-13$$
$$y=-\frac{1}{6x-x^2-13}$$
$$y=\frac{1}{6x-x^2+13}$$

why?

Looks like the answer is wrong.

I think that the negative was distributed before the Constant was added.. I just dont know why?

$$\int \frac{dy}{y}$$ is not $$\frac{-1}{y}$$

sorry, it's y^2

f(3)=1/4

$$\int\frac{dy}{y^2}=\int (6-2x)dx$$
$$-\frac{1}{y}=6x-x^2+C$$
$$-4=18-9+C$$
$$C=-13$$
$$-\frac{1}{y}=6x-x^2-13$$
$$y=-\frac{1}{6x-x^2-13}$$
$$y=\frac{1}{6x-x^2+13}$$

why?

$$-\frac{1}{y}=6x-x^2+C$$

$$y = -\frac{1}{6x-x^2+c}$$

$$-\frac{1}{4} = \frac{1}{9+C}$$

C = 13

sub that back in... you get the same equation as I do...

I'm sorry, C is -13, and yeah, the one you got is correct.

I dont see how they got that answer...

You wrote the answer in correct in your first post, and unless theres a new math system where

C + 9 = 4, and C = 18 theyre wrong. C is -13
