# 10 Integral Problems

I wrote some problems inspired by the MIT integration bee. Enjoy ^-^

1. $$\displaystyle\int{\dfrac{dx}{x + \ln{(x^x)}}}$$

2. $\displaystyle\int{2^{x} \cdot 2^{2^{x}} \cdot 2^{2^{2^{x}}}dx}$

3. $\displaystyle\int{\sqrt{1+\sqrt{1+x}} dx }$

4. $\displaystyle\int{ \dfrac{\sin{(8x)}}{\sin{(x)}}dx }$

5. $\displaystyle\int{ \dfrac{\sqrt{1-x}}{x}dx }$

6. $\displaystyle\int{ \cos^{-1}{(x)}^2dx}$

7. $\displaystyle\int_{\frac{1}{2}}^{2} { \dfrac{dx}{x^4(1+x^3)} }$

8. $\displaystyle\int_{0}^{\pi} { \lfloor \sin{(x)} - \cos{(x)} \rfloor dx }$

9. $\displaystyle\int_{-\frac{\pi}{3}}^{\frac{\pi}{3}} { \dfrac{1-\sqrt{\sin{(x)}}}{1-\sin{(x)}^2} dx}$

10. $\displaystyle\int_{0}^{1} { x^5\ln{(x)}^{10} dx}$ Note by Daniel Hinds

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

• Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
• Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
• Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.
• Stay on topic — we're all here to learn more about math and science, not to hear about your favorite get-rich-quick scheme or current world events.

I think you might have made a mistake tho the answer is $\displaystyle\frac{2^{2^{2^{x}}}}{\ln^3(2)}+C$

5.) $2\int_{ }^{ }\frac{\cos^2t}{\sin t}dt\ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \left(Took\ \ x\ =\ \sin^2t\right)$

$=2\left(\left(\int_{ }^{ }\csc tdt\right)-\left(\int_{ }^{ }\sin tdt\right)\right)$

$=2\ln\left(\csc t-\cot t\right)+\cos t+C$

$=2\ln\left(1-\sqrt{1-x}\right)-\ln x+\sqrt{1-x}+C$

Excuse me, I am a student currently studying in Grade 10 and I want to master calculus. I have joined some related courses on Brilliant and I have been practicing a lot. But I am still having some difficulties in distilling the fundamental concepts in calculus. What concepts in calculus do you think are essential and fundamental? What should I pay attention on in each concept? I can only think of "limit", "continuity", "derivatives", "differentiation & integration" and a few theorems(e.g. EVT, IVT). Any comment would be a great help for me.

Yeah Stewart calculus is bloody amazing. I use it as my primary calculus book and that's how I know calc.

For problem 7, make the substitution $u = 1/x^3,$ $-du/3 = dx/x^4,$ to get \begin{aligned} \int_{8}^{1/8} \frac{-du/3}{1+1/u} = \frac13 \int_{1/8}^8 \frac{u \, du}{u+1} &= \frac13\left( 8-\frac18 \right) - \frac13 \int_{1/8}^8 \frac{du}{u+1} \\ &= \frac{21}8 - \frac13 (\ln(9) - \ln(9/8)) \\ &= \frac{21}8 - \frac13 \ln(8) \\ &= \frac{21}8 - \ln(2). \end{aligned}

For problem 8, this should just be $\frac{\pi}4(-1) + \frac{\pi}4(0) + \frac{\pi}2(1) = \frac{\pi}4.$

Solution to problem 4: WKT sin(2kx)/sin(x) = 2[cos(x) + cos(3x) +...+ cos((2k-1)x)]

Plugging k=4 gives us the integrand.

Using the R.H.S expression, the integral is 2[ sin(x) + ((sin(3x))/3) + ((sin(5x))/5) + ((sin(7x))/7) ]1😁

Really sorry for the format.

We can use

$\frac{\sin\left(2kx\right)}{\sin x}=2\sum_{n=1}^k\cos\left(\left(2n-1\right)x\right)$

And thus, plugging $k=4$ gives us the integral to be equal to

$2\left(\sin x+\frac{\sin\left(3x\right)}{3}+\frac{\sin\left(5x\right)}{5}+\frac{\sin\left(7x\right)}{7}\right)+C$

Problem $10$. $\int_0^1 x^5\ln x^{10}dx=10[0-\int_0^1 \dfrac{1}{x}\times \dfrac{x^6}{6}dx]=-\dfrac{5}{18}$

Problem $6$. The function $\cos^{-1}(x) ^2$ doesn't have an antiderivative. To integrate the function $(\cos^{-1}x)^2$, substitute $\cos^{-1}x$ by $t$ and integrate by parts twice to obtain the value of the integral as $x(\cos^{-1}x)^2-2\sqrt {1-x^2}-2x+C$.
