if f(1)=12 and f' is continuous, what is the value of f(4)?

integral from 1 to 4 of f'(x)dx = 17

IF the integral of f'(x) dx from 1 to 4 is 17, as you say, then the function f(x), which is the integral with an arbitrary constant, changes by 17 from 1 to 4. Then the value of f(x) at x=4 must be 12 + 17 = 29.

    how do you start this problem: integral of xe^(-2x) There are two ways: 1) Integration by parts. 2) Differentiation w.r.t. a suitably chosen parameter. Lets do 1) first. This is the "standard method", but it is often more tedious
