TUTORIAL 6

1. Evaluate the following indefinite integrals.


(a). R x−1/3 dx
R

(b). 5 sin 3θ dθ
R √x
(c). + √2x dx
R 2
(d). R (1 + tan x)dx
(e). R (7x − 2)3 dx
(f). R sin4 x2 cos x2 dx

(g). (5−x) 4 dx

2. Let f (x) = 2 sin x cos x. Find the indefinite integral of f (x) with respect to x using the
following ways: (1) replace u = sin x; (2) replace u = cos x ; (3) use the identity 2 sin x cos x =
sin 2x. Can they all be correct? Explain!

3. Use Riemann sums to show that

5. Find the derivatives of the following integrals.


R √x
(a). R0 sin tdt

(b). 0 λe−λy dy
R0 dt
(c). tan x 1+t 2

6. Use the Mean Value Theorem to show that the area under f (x) = 1 + cos x from x = 0 to
x = π is π.

7. The standard normal distribution has probability density function given by

f (x) = √ e−x /2 dx.

Statistical tables contain tabulated values of the definite integral of f (x) from 0 to z for various
R 1.96
values of z. Using the Trapeizoidal and Simpson Rules, check that 0 f (x)dx is approximately
