    I would find it helpful when showing proofs in class that you spend a little bit more time showing every step on the board. The reason I ask for every step to be shown is that I find it hard to follow letters rather than numbers. Thanks I hope this helps.

    Hello Dr. Caicedo,

    I found values for A, B, and C in all the examples you asked for. I solved them like we would any other problem in the book which is beside the point, however there is a pattern if there is anything to be deduced from that.

    When the the numerator is 1: A=-1/2; B=1; C=1/2. When x: A=0; B=1; C=0. When x^2: A=1/2; B=1; C=1/2.

    I’ve been searching the internet trying to find a solution that is more what I believe you are looking for however I haven’t found anything suitable yet. I can’t wait to see the answer to this!

    Hi! So, I have been working pretty much all day on the last two problems in seciton 7.4. I seeem to get stuck. The last problem in particular, I have evaluated by parts so that I can appropriately integrate for M but when I am looking for x hat my numbers are so far out of the x range. Also, I am once again getting stuck trying to find y hat. I was wondering if you could at least go over it in class? Any hints would be helpful! Thanks

  4. Hi Aubrey,
    Problem 7.4.38 is just partial fractions after a change of variables.
    I think you are trying the wrong approach with 7.4.46, since you are not being asked to find the center of mass of the shaded region. Maybe you meant a different problem?
