A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

What is the integral of tan x-3 dx?

In this specific example one would need to use the u substitution method. * Set u to be x - 3 * Derive x - 3 * u = x - 3 * du = dx Now that we have integrated u we can remove the x - 3 and substitute in u and remove the dx and substitute in du. This is what we have after substituting: * (the integrand of) tan(u)du Now integrate tan(u)du * the Integral of tan(u)du is: * sec2(u) Now resubstitute what we set as u. In this case we set x - 3 to u. This will give us our final answer and integral of tan(x-3)dx. * sec2(x - 3)

How do you integrate sec cube 2x?

The integral of sec(x) is ln|secx+tanx| + C Since the derivative is taken to the third power, we have to consider the chain rule; the original equation must be to the fourth power, and in order for that to be canceled out, the equation must also have had a coefficient of 1/4. 2x is also subject to the chain rule. I would suggest u substitution. integral(sec(2x))^3 dx u=2x du=2dx dx=1/2du integral (sec(u))^3 *1/2 du 1/8 secxtanx + 1/8(ln|secx+tanx|^4) + C

What is the indefinite integral?

An indefinite integral is a version of an integral that, unlike a definite integral, returns an expression instead of a number. The general form of a definite integral is: ∫ba f(x) dx. The general form of an indefinite integral is: ∫ f(x) dx. An example of a definite integral is: ∫20 x2 dx. An example of an indefinite integral is: ∫ x2 dx In the definite case, the answer is 23/3 - 03/3 = 8/3. In the indefinite case, the answer is x3/3 + C, where C is an arbitrary constant.

How does one find the integral of secant cubed of x dx?

Find I = ∫ sec³ x dx. The answer is I = ½ [ log(sec x + tan x) + sec x tan x ]. * Here is how we may find it: Letting s = sec x, and t = tan x, we have, s² = 1 + t², dt = s² dx = (1 + t²) dx, and ds = st dx. Then, we obtain, dI = s³ dx = s dt. * Now, d(st) = s dt + t ds = dI + t ds = dI + st² dx = dI + s(s² - 1)dx = dI + s³ dx - s dx = 2dI - s dx; whence, 2dI = s dx + d(st). * Also, we have, s = (s² + st) / (s + t), whence s dx = (s² + st) dx / (s + t) = (dt + ds) / (s + t) = d(s + t) / (s + t) = d log(s + t). This gives us, 2dI = d log(s + t) + d(st). Integrating, we easily obtain, I = ½ [ log(s + t) + st ], which is the answer we sought. * Checking that we have arrived at the correct answer, we differentiate back: d(st) / dx = (st)'= st' + ts' = s³ + st² = 2s³ - s. d log(s + t) / dx = log'(s + t) = (s + t)' / (s + t) = (st + s²) / (s + t) = s. Thus, 2I' = [ st + log(s + t) ]' = 2s³; and I' = ½ [ st + log(s + t) ]' = s³, confirming that our answer is correct.
