Here is the question. I'm really stuck on part b. The final answer is 2.942 but I'm not really sure on how to get to it so some help would be great!

You have a function (sketch something) between .5 and .9. You shift up by 2, how does the integral/area change. You scale it by 3, how does the integral/area change?

i get confused on these questions too so if u shift up the area doesn’t change and if u scale by three does that mean u just multiply the answer from part a by 3?

Shifting up by 2 doesn't change the area but x3 means the area has to be x3 as well. My answer to part a was 0.714. When I x3 I get 2.142 which is 0.8 away from the right answer (2.942). I am confused as the mark scheme just says to add on 0.8 at the end but why?

shifting up by 2 adds a rectangle to the bottom so the area will change. A decent sketch really helps or think about what happens if you just integrate the constant 2.

I finally get it now 😭 after such a long time. Thank you!

Integration isnt that different from summing a sequence (a series) so if youre stuck, think what would happen if you had

1 + 2 + 3 + 4

Its obviously 10, so what happens if you tripled the values and then added 2 so

5, 8, 11, 14

... If youre stuck, getting some insight from a simplified problem usually works.

Thank you so much! I will keep this in mind 🙂
