s integral
endpoints are 0 and pi/2
i need to find the integral of sin^2 (2x) dx.
i know that the answer is pi/4, but im not sure how to get to it.
i know:
s sin^2(2x)dx= 1/2 [1cos (4x)] dx, but then i'm confused.
The indefinite integral of
(1/2) [1cos (4x)] is
(x/2)  (1/2)(1/4)(sin 4x)
Evaluate that at x = p/2 and 0 and take the difference
I get [(pi/4) 0]  {0  0) = pi/4
YOu got the hardest part, now expand your expression.
Hint: what is the derivative of 1/8 sin(4x)?

i'm having trouble evaluating the integral at pi/2 and 0. i know: s (at pi/2 and 0) sin^2 (2x)dx= s 1/2[1cos(2x)]dx= s 1/2(xsin(4x))dx= (x/2) 1/8[sin (4x)] i don't understand how you get pi/4 You made a few mistakes, check again. …
