Example of division of fractions:

Example:

(4/5)/(2/9) =

Solution:

Step 1:            Invert the divisor fraction (2/9) to (9/2).

Step 2:            Multiply the dividend fraction, (4/5) , through the inverted fraction (9/2)

(4/5) . (9/2) = 36/10

Step  3: Reduce fraction to lowest terms.

(36/2)/(10/2) = 18/5 = 3(3/5)

Division  of  mixed  numbers  might  be  accomplished  through  changing  the  mixed  number  within  an improper fraction (a/b), inverting the divisor, and proceeding as in multiplication.

Invert the divisor fraction and then go after the rule for multiplication.

Definition 1.   We say that f(x) consist an absolute (or global) maximum at x = c if f ( x ) ≤ f (c ) for every x in the domain we are working on. 2.  We say that at x = c ,

Let u = sin(x). Then du = cos(x) dx. So you can now antidifferentiate e^u du. This is e^u + C = e^sin(x) + C.  Then substitute your range 0 to pi. e^sin (pi)-e^sin(0) =0-0 =0
