Problem 187 - THE PI CONSTRICTION - DIFFICULTY LEVEL *

Find

With the soul-shattering knowledge garnered from this wonderful integral in mind deduce that the almighty circle constant is less than

Extension work (although I know that no one in the right mind would bother with it)

Find AND UTILIZE THIS MAMMOTH INTEGRAL TO SHOW FURTHER THAT
Whilst it's a very fun looking question with a very nice picture I'm afraid we have already had this one

Edit: Oh and the asterisks are assumed knowledge, not difficulty

Damn I haven't been following this thread often enough. Apologies, I shall delete my post and yes I thought the apple pie was a great touch haha

It's such a shame, sorry to have to point it out

Do post another/others though

I was sort of joking about the computation part that I had calculated 100! x 99! x 98! x 97!... (If I did, then well, I might as well quit school now and just end up replacing the TI-84 plus).
The highest my CASIO calculator can compute is 69! (srs)

Same. Maths is just a nymphomaniac.
6. Problem 187 **/***

Problem 188
7. Right yeh..chemistry...I knew I was meant to be doing something.
8. Problem 189*

Not hard but it's quirky

Problem 188 **
Solution 188

Let ,

Solution 177

Solution 180

I'll leave the rest, 183 looks like an algebraic mess
Nice solutions bro! Why has no-one done 184? You can do it in your head it's so simple! !

Oh and 183 isn't an algebraic mess! They are all rather trivial in fact! The intention is to see if you can do 15-25 of them in 20 minutes

More fun ****:

Problem 190*

Evaluate

Precisely this

I know They're all quite nice, short and snappy, I could do them all now but I figured I'd let other people try them They're quite nice little integrals to do, not like some of the beasts that have been posted on here that leave you scratching your head for hours

Mmm, they are a little too trivial for my liking though. They are more exercises than anything else I'd say and, apart from a few of the more difficult ones that have a very specific route, you tend to be able to do them with the first substitution you try

****, I've got 3 exams at the start of the week... I should probably gtfo this forum

True, the substitution's usually pretty obvious as well, they're just slightly harder than A-level I suppose the time pressure is the hard part
Same, I have 2 next week and I've been procrastinating so much over half term with this stuff
14. Solution 190
Substituting , then

Also, how to format latex properly? Like, line breaks and aligned equals signs and ****

Edit: fuuu I'm too slow

God typing LaTeX on a mobile is tedious.
16. Solution 187

Hence

(before bananarama unleashes the swears, line 3 to 4 is done by splitting into partial fractions and completing the square etc. It's relatively messy and tedious so I omitted it).

Problem 188**

Now this is what I call mislabeling.

I may be some time typing up the tex

That's fair enough Explaining is fine.

Agreed.
