substitution for 5r-s=5 -4r+5s=17

asked by Anonymous
  1. Rearrange first equation.

    s = 5r - 5

    -4r + 5s = 17

    Substitute 5r - 5 for s in the second equation and solve for r. Put that value in the first equation to solve for s. Check by putting both values in the second equation.

    Integrate x/(x^2 + 4) dx via trig substitution and by u=x^2+4 substitution. Show that results are equal. Via trig substitution of x=2 *tan t, I get: 1/2 * tan^-1 (x/2) + c Via u = (x^2 + 4) substitution, I get: 1/2 * ln |x^2 + 4|
