# Homework Help: FTC (e^-x^2)

1. Nov 13, 2012

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

The function, p(x;y), of two variables is defined for x>y>0, and satisfies

We furthermore know that dp(x,y)/dx = (e^-x^2)

and that p(y; y) = 0

2. Relevant equations

I now need to write p(x,y) as a definite integral of the form int (f(t)dt, with lower bound t=H and upper bound x.

3. The attempt at a solution

I suppose I need the info p(y; y) = 0 to get the bounds, but not quite sure how. I sat earlier an evaluated the integral from 0 to inf and from -inf to inf, however I do not see how that could come in handy. I am thinking of treating the function as one of x alone as a start, but do not know how to proceed from there?
Anyone can give me a hint :-) Th

Do you really mean x>y>0, or di you mean x>0 and y>0 ?

Does p(x,y) satisfy something in addition to what's stated ?

Check for any other typos you may have, so that your post is more readable.

I meant satisfies "x ≥ y ≥ 0". Don't know where that went.

Sorry for that. All the best

Still doesn't make sense. That's a change to the specified domain of p, not a property of p.
