Find the area enclosed by the following functions from x=0 to x=2:

y=sqrt*(x+2)
y=1/(1+x)

I got
2/3(8)-ln3-2/3(sqrt*8)

2/3(8)-ln3-2/3(sqrt*8)

16/3 - ln 3 - 4/3(sqrt(2))

You have 16/3,
2/3 (8) = 16/3

Where you went wrong,
You have, 2/3 (sqrt(8))
It should be,
2/3 (0 + 2)^3/2
2/3 (2)^3/2
2/3 (sqrt(2))^3
2/3 (2(sqrt(2)))
4/3 (sqrt(2))

Perfect, thanks!
but my answer is definitely not wrong because
2/3(sqrt(8)) and 4/3(sqrt(2)) are the same.

Because.. 8=4x2 and sqrt of 4 is 2.. so you take 2 out of the sqrt to be 2. 2x2 is 4. so you end up with 4/3(sqrt(2)). Do you agree?

I guess it depends on your teacher, because

(2)^3/2 means (sqrt(2))^3

I've never seen anyone interpret this as
(sqrt(2^3)).

The first way will always get you the correct, simplified answer. If I were you, I would get in the habit of doing this the first way.

Good luck.

Solve the initial-value problem. Am I using the wrong value for beta here, 2sqrt(2) or am I making a mistake somewhere else?

Evaluate the indefinite integral: 8x-x^2. I got this but I the homework system says its wrong:sqrt((-x-8)x)/(2*sqrt(x-8)*sqrt(x))*(((sqrt(x-8)*(x-4)*sqrt(x))-32*log(sqrt(x-8)+sqrt(x))
