  1. Dec 5, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    (d/dx)∫from(x^(1/2)) to x^2 of tan(9t) dt

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution


    I am not sure what I am doing wrong here.

    Re: Integral

    You are using the fundamental theorem of calculus here, right? Can you explain how you got that? There's a few parts of right things in there. But overall, it's a mess.

    Your post is very hard to read. Please consider typing up your equations with LaTeX. Here is a short guide: https://www.physicsforums.com/showpost.php?p=3977517&postcount=3 It would really help us a lot.

    Also, there is no such word as "intergral" in English. I am editing your title.

    Re: Integral

    I would write the original function as
    [tex]\int_{x^{1/2}}^{x^2} tan(9t)dt= \int_{x^{1/2}}^a tan(9t)dt+ \int_a^{x^2} tan(9t) dt[/tex]
    [tex]= \int_a^{x^2} tan(9t)dt- \int_a^{x^{1/2}} tan(9t)dt[/tex]

    NOW use the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus. It looks to me like you forgot the derivative of the "[itex]x^{1/2}[/itex]" term.
