OK, well this is probably a pretty basic problem. I understand all of it except for one part.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

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

If [tex]F(x)=\int^{x}_{0} sin(t)dt[/tex], where x [tex]\geq[/tex] 0, what is the maximum value of F?

2. Relevant equations

[tex]F(x)=\int^{x}_{0} sin(t)dt[/tex]

3. The attempt at a solution

[tex]F(x)=\int^{x}_{0} sin(t)dt = -cos(x) + c[/tex]

max = 1 + c

How do you find c?

If solving with a graphing calculator: [tex]y^{}_{1} = Fnint(sin(t),t,0,x)[/tex] then the answer is 2; I just don't know how the calculator found the shift.
