The integral of a sum 2016-03-10
From Rahul:
How to solve definite integral of a sum. The specific problem is as follows,
Integral of ( 1+ sum of x^k, k=1 to k=n), x=0 to x=b *dx.
The answer is b + sum of b^(k)/k, k=2, to k=n+1. I understand only the integral of first term. But integral of the sum I do not understand at all.

Antiderivative of 1/(x(1 - x)) 2008-10-22
From Matt:
derivative of dx/(x(1-x))

From what I've seen I should break apart the equation as such derivative of dx/x - dx/(1-x) and then get the 2 corresponding log functions.

If that is correct why does this factoring work, if that is incorrect what is the proper way to find the derivative.

The probability that the area of a triangle is smaller that 1/8 2001-12-21
From Hoda:
Given unit square pick two points on adjacent sides of the square , what is the probability that the area of the resulting triangle is smaller that 1/8? I tried to tackle the problem by first sketching a square with the four vertices at (0,0), (1,1), (0,1) and (1,1). The answer seems to be the area under the curve y=0.25/x between 1 and 0, but how can you integrate such a function when ln0 is undefined? any help would be highly appreciated.

Oil revenue 2001-04-21
From Brian:
Suppose that t months from now an oil well will be producing crude oil at the rate of r(t), not a constant, barrels per month and that the price of crude oil will be p(t), not a constant, dollars per barrel. Assume that the oil is sold as soon as it is extracted from the ground.
  1. Find an expression for the total revenue from the oil well, R(t).

  2. A certain oil well that currently yields 400 barrels of crude oil a month will run dry in 2 years. The price of crude oil is currently $18 per barrel and is expected to rise at a constant rate of 3 cents per barrel per month. What will be the total revenue from this well? {Hint: Model the degraded production rate with the equation:

Comparing an integral and a sum 2000-11-21
From Douglas Norberg:
A fellow teacher asked me about a problem she wanted to give to her students. It involved whether to take a million dollars or a penny doubled a number of times. I was able to determine the number must have been .01 * 230 which is about $10 million and a lot more than $1 million. To check that I was right I used a spreadsheet and did a Riemann sum.

When I finished I reasoned that I had done the task in several steps and I could have done it in 1 step. Thus I integrated .01 * 2x from 0 through 30 but the number I got was $15,490,820.0324. Why the difference?
