∫sin2x dx

Use the identity sin2x = ½ - ½(cos2x)

∫[½ - ½(cos2x)] dx = ∫½ dx - ∫½(cos2x) dx

Let's split it up into ∫½ dx and ∫½(cos2x) dx

∫½ dx = x/2 (we'll put the constant in at the end)

∫½(cos2x) dx (Use u substitution with u=2x and du = 2 dx)

∫cosu ¼du = ¼∫cosu du = ¼sinu + c = ¼sin2x (remember to resubstitute)

Subtract the two parts and add a constant

x/2 - ¼(sin2x) + c

This is also equivalent to: ½(x - sinxcosx) + c

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

Is sin squared theta and sin theta squared the same?

Your question is insufficiently precise, but I'll try to answer anyway. "Sine squared theta" usually means "the value of the sine of theta, quantity squared". "Sine theta squared" usually means "the value of the sine of the quantity theta*theta". The two are not at all the same.

What is sine squared?

Answer 1 Put simply, sine squared is sinX x sinX. However, sine is a function, so the real question must be 'what is sinx squared' or 'what is sin squared x': 'Sin(x) squared' would be sin(x^2), i.e. the 'x' is squared before performing the function sin. 'Sin squared x' would be sin^2(x) i.e. sin squared times sin squared: sin(x) x sin(x). This can also be written as (sinx)^2 but means exactly the same. Answer 2 Sine squared is sin^2(x). If the power was placed like this sin(x)^2, then the X is what is being squared. If it's sin^2(x) it's telling you they want sin(x) times sin(x).

What is a normal sine wave?

A sine wave is a mathematical function that describes a smooth repetitive oscillation which looks like a wave going from 1 to -1 and back to 1. A normal sine wave is much like a sine wave but has been normalized for practical uses like in electronics creating a "squared" sine wave A perfect sine wave does not exist in reality, it only exists in the minds of mathematicians.
