the cosine function at 0 takes value of 1 and at pi takes -1 so the area under f(x)=cosx from 0 to pi is 0 now you only need to get the f(x)=x from 0 to pi and that is just a triangle you dont even need integration .-)

yes it is $\frac{\pi^2}{2}$

OpenStudy (anonymous):

$\int_0^{\pi} x + \cos(x)dx$ $F(x)=\frac{x^2}{2}-\sin(x)$ $F(\pi)-F(0)=\frac{\pi^2}{2}$

I prefer my solution :-)

OpenStudy (anonymous):

yes snappier

Moral: always draw a rough diagram first, to see what's going on
