(answer: 14.946)

I tried typing the integrals in the graphing calculator to get the answer, but it says overflow. Any help on solving this? Thanks!

**drwls**, Wednesday, June 4, 2008 at 9:53pmNote that the integrand of #2, is inues that of #1, so that the two integrals cancel over the 2 to 50 range, just the integral of (13^x - 11^x) from 1 to 2.

Recognizing that the 2 to 500 part of the integrals, which are extremely large numbers, cancel out should help you avoid the overflow problem.

The answer is integral 1 to 2

(13^x - 11^x) dx

The integral of a^x is a^x/log a, so

The indefinite integral is

13^x/log 13 - 11^x/log 11

At x = 2, this is 65.888 - 50.461 = 18.427

At x = 1, is it 5.068 - 4.587 = 0.481

Take the difference of those two numbers for the final answer. it is 17.946.., not 14.946

I think you typed it wrong.

**Anonymous**, Wednesday, June 4, 2008 at 10:31pmI typed the the answer correctly. At x=2, 65.888-50.461, which is equal to 15.427. So, 15.427-.481= 14.946. Thanks for the help!
