The S thingy has 1 at the bottom and 9 at the top. 4x^2+5 divided by the sqrt of x.

**MathMate**, Wednesday, June 24, 2009 at 1:10amThe S thingy is called the integral sign.

The number at the bottom (1) is the lower limit of a definite integral, and the top number (9) is the upper limit of integration.

The expression to be evaluated probably looks similar to this:

I = ∫_{1}^{9}(4*x^2+5)/sqrt(x) dx

If you use the substitution

u=sqrt(x), then

du=(1/2)*dx/sqrt(x)

Substituting the limits and the variables involving x, we get

I= ∫_{1}^{9}(4*x^2+5)/sqrt(x) dx

= ∫_{sqrt(x)}^{sqrt(9)}(4u^4+5)*2 du

= ∫_{sqrt(x)}^{sqrt(9)}(4u^4+5)*2 du

Continuing the integration and evaluate the integral according to the integration limits, we should obtain 2036/5 as the numerical answer.

Post if you need more details.
