Hiya,

 

Can I please have some assistance with the following question:

Please follow the steps from (1) through to (4).

I am able to solve the integral (boxed in pink) using the formula (boxed in green) which I sourced from a text book .

I would like to know how to enter and solve the above integral (boxed in pink) uning the HP Prime Graphing Calculator.

 

When I enter the equation boxed in pink into the HP Prime Graphing Calculator I get the following solution:

Thanks,

Athanasios

In my opinion the problem is that there are 2 completely different solutions for p>0 and p<0, and even another distinct one for p=0.

 

Prime's solution seems correct, but only for negative p, which is evident, because the root of a negative number does not exist (for real numbers).

 

The method you want to apply is only valid for positive p.

 

Prime is able to calculate the integral for positive p, but only in concrete situations.
