Dear Pankaj,

I think the detaisl given are incomplete .

you must also give the limit of integration so that it can be solved.

take sec^-1 x=cos^-1 1/x then see where do the function changes its value from one integer to another within the limits and then integrate

Best Of luck

3 ∫ 2 (2x 2 + 1) dx
integration of (2(X^2)+1)dx from 2 to 3 is equal to (2((x^3)/3)+x) from 2 to3 =(2((3^3)/3)+3)-(2((2^3)/3)+2) =(2*(27/3)+3)-(2*(8/3)+2) =(18+3)-((16/3)+2) =(21)-(22/3) =41/3

Ans:- 3 ∫ 2 (2x 2 +1)dx =2[(x 2+1 /2+1)] 2 3 +[x] 2 3 =2[(x 3 /3)] 2 3 +[x] 2 3 =2[(3 3 /3)+(2 3 /3)]+[3-2] =2[(27+8)/3]+1 =2[(35/3)]+1 =(70/3)+1 =73/3

Find the value of a for which the limit of function exists at x = 0. f(x) = (1-cos4x)/x 2 , x f(x) = a, x = 0 f(x) = (x) 1/2 /((16 + x 1/2 ) 1/2 – 4), x > 0
Ans: Since the limit of function exist at zero. So at x = 0 LHL = f(0) = RHL Apply L’Hospital rule
