## Worked Solutions

1a)

$\int 2x^{5}\,dx$ Using our rule: That $\int {\frac {dy}{dx}}=x^{n}dx$ is equal to $y={\frac {x^{(n+1)}}{(n+1)}}+C$ We get:
$y={\frac {2x^{6}}{6}}+C$ b)

$\int 7x^{6}+2x^{3}-x^{2}\,dx$ Again using our rule, we would get:
$y=x^{7}+{\frac {x^{4}}{2}}-{\frac {x^{3}}{3}}+C$ 2a)

$\int x+5\,dx$ given that the point $(0,3)$ lies on the curve.
Using our rule, the integral becomes
$y={\frac {x^{2}}{2}}+5x+C$ Now we can sub in our points $(0,3)$ , So that:
$3={\frac {0^{2}}{2}}+5(0)+C$ Therefore C = 3

b)

$\int 3x^{2}+7x+0.1\,dx$ Evaulating this we get: $x^{3}+{\frac {7x^{2}}{2}}+0.1x+C$ Given (2,2), subing these points in:
$2=2^{3}+{\frac {7(2^{2})}{2}}+0.2+C$ $2=8+14+0.2+C$ $C=-20.2$ 3a)

$\int _{0}^{2}x+1\,dx$ Evaluating this we get:
${\Bigg \lfloor }{\frac {x^{2}}{2}}+x{\Bigg \rceil }_{0}^{2}$ Substituting in values we get:
${\Bigg \lfloor }\left({\frac {2^{2}}{2}}+2\right)-\left({\frac {0^{2}}{2}}+0\right){\Bigg \rceil }$ $=4$ b)

$\int _{-3}^{4.7}{\frac {1}{7}}x^{\frac {1}{3}}+1\,dx$ Evaluating this we get:
${\Bigg \lfloor }{\frac {3x^{\frac {4}{3}}}{28}}+x{\Bigg \rceil }_{-3}^{4.7}$ ${\Bigg \lfloor }\left({\frac {3(4.7)^{\frac {4}{3}}}{28}}+4.7\right)-\left({\frac {3(-3)^{\frac {4}{3}}}{28}}-3\right){\Bigg \rceil }$ $\approx 8.08$ 4)

The question is simply to evaluate this definite integral:
{\begin{aligned}\int _{-2}^{0}{\bigg (}y=-x^{4}-{\frac {1}{2}}x^{3}+3x^{2}{\bigg )}\,dx&={\Bigg \lfloor }\left({\frac {-1}{5}}x^{5}-{\frac {1}{8}}x^{4}+x^{3}\right){\Bigg \rceil }_{-2}^{0}\\&=-{\bigg (}{\frac {-1}{5}}*-2^{5}-{\frac {1}{8}}*-2^{4}-2^{3}{\bigg )}\\&=3.6\end{aligned}}
