Integration

This rule of integration 0af(x)dx=0af(ax)dx\displaystyle\int \limits^{a}_{0}f\left( x\right) dx =\displaystyle\int \limits^{a}_{0}f\left( a - x\right) dx I tried by using this rule to solve this integration but it wasn't solve.. the integration is 0πx2tan2(x)dx\displaystyle\int \limits^{\pi }_{0}\frac{x}{2 - \tan \nolimits^{2}\left( x\right) } dx ... I tried wolfram alpha also but it was useless ..... How we can solve this integration by using this rule? . Thanks

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.

you could try with partial fractions too

you can apply the rule then add the new integral to the original one, and divide by 2. You will be left with the integral:π20π12tan2xdx\displaystyle \frac{\pi}{2} \int_0^{\pi} \frac{1}{2-\tan^2x} dx .

Did you try that??

What will happen if we solve 2tan2x=02 - tan^{2} x = 0 x(0,π) x \in (0, \pi) ?.....

yes there is discontinueties in the integral at :

arctan(2) \arctan (\sqrt{2} ) which is between π4 \frac{\pi}{4} and π2 \frac{\pi}{2} .

And πarctan(2) \pi - \arctan (\sqrt{2} ) .

@Hasan Kassim So this integration is divergent.... could you please explain more this part of discontinuous.?

David Danial - 5 years, 2 months ago

@David Danial Yes the integral diverges: lets take take a part of it :

0arctan(2)dx2tan2x\displaystyle \int_0^{\arctan (\sqrt{2})} \frac{dx}{2-\tan^2x}

=limaarctan(2)0adx2tan2x\displaystyle = \lim_{a \to \arctan (\sqrt{2})} \int_0^{a} \frac{dx}{2-\tan^2x}

Use the substitution u=tanx u=\tan x :

=limaarctan(2)0tanadu(2u2)(1+u2)\displaystyle = \lim_{a \to \arctan (\sqrt{2})} \int_0^{\tan a } \frac{du}{(2-u^2)(1+u^2)}

Easy by applying partial fractions then integrating, then apply the limit and it will yield a value of infinty. So the whole Integral diverges.

@Trevor B. You might like this!

Yes, the Bounds Trick works nicely here. I know how to get to the indefinite, I just need to make the time to write it down and check the bounds. Partial fracs with what Hasan said originally should make it work.
