Determine whether the statement is true or false. If it is true, explain why. If it is false, explain why or give an example that disproves the statement. 211x4dx=38
The given statement is true or false.
Recall the comparison property of an integral
The function is not bounded on the interval has infinite discontinuity at so it is not integrable on the given interval. So the given statement is meaningless and hence false. Even if the integral were to exist, then it is non negative because a definite integral of non- negative function on that interval is always non- negative. i.e.
