If A(t) = t i - t2 j + (t - 1) k and B(t) = 2t2 i + 6t k, evaluate (a) [tex]\int^{2}_{0}A \cdot B dt,[/tex] (b) [tex]\int^{2}_{0}A \times B dt.[/tex]

Doesn't sound too complicated, just plug in A and B, work out the vector products and do the integration using
[tex]\int a t^n \, dt = \frac{a}{n + 1} t^{n + 1}[/tex]

The solution I've made is not complicated.

You try first to evaluate the vectors and then take the integral of them.

What do you mean "the solution I've made"? You did not show any work or solution at all. What, exactly, are you asking?

I think he asks us to evaluate the integrals.
I just did it.

I evaluate the values of [tex]A\cdot B[/tex] and [tex]A\times B[/tex] first. Then integrate the both with respect to their limits.

Yes, that is how you solve it.
Halls meant: what exactly is your question (as in, problem, what you need our help with)?

I didn't pretend that I know the answer.

Here is my solution to the problem I posted.

To letter (a). [tex]A\cdot B = 2t^{3} + 6t^{2} - 6t[/tex]

Taking its integral with respect to t from 0 to 2 will give an answer of 12.

To letter (b). [tex]A\times B = -6t^{3}i + [2t^{2} (t -1) - 6t^{2}]j - 2t^{4}k[/tex]

Then, taking its integral with respect to t from 0 to 2 will result to [tex]-24 i- \frac{40}{3}j + \frac{64}{5} k[/tex]
