Explain why each of the following integrals is improper.
(a) \(\int_6^7 \frac{x}{x-6}dx\)
-Since the integral has an infinite interval of integration, it is a Type 1 improper integral.
-Since the integral has an infinite discontinuity, it is a Type 2 improper integral.
-The integral is a proper integral.
(b)\(\int_0^{\infty} \frac{1}{1+x^3}dx\)
Since the integral has an infinite interval of integration, it is a Type 1 improper integral.
Since the integral has an infinite discontinuity, it is a Type 2 improper integral.
The integral is a proper integral.
(c) \(\int_{-\infty}^{\infty}x^2 e^{-x^2}dx\)
-Since the integral has an infinite interval of integration, it is a Type 1 improper integral.
-Since the integral has an infinite discontinuity, it is a Type 2 improper integral.
-The integral is a proper integral.
d)\(\int_0^{\frac{\pi}{4}} \cot x dx\)
-Since the integral has an infinite interval of integration, it is a Type 1 improper integral.
-Since the integral has an infinite discontinuity, it is a Type 2 improper integral.
-The integral is a proper integral.

a)
Consider the integral \(\int_6^7 \frac{x}{x-6}dx\)
It is improper because it is discontinuous at x=6
Since the integral has an infinite discontinuity , it is a type 2 improper integral.
b) Let us consider the integral \(\int_0^{\infty} \frac{dx}{1+x^3}\)
Since the integral has an infinite interval of integration. That is \((0,\infty)\)
It is Type 1 improper integral.
c)
Consider the integral \(\int_{-\infty}^{\infty} x^2 e^{-x^2}dx\)
Since the integral has an infinite interval of integration. That is \((-\infty,\infty)\)
It is Type 1 improper integral.
d)
Consider the interval \(\int_0^{\frac{\pi}{4}} \cot x dx\)
It is improper because it is discontinuous at x=0
Since the integral has an infinite discontinuity , it is a type 2 improper integral.

Consider the accompanying data on flexural strength (MPa) for concrete beams of a certain type.
\(\begin{array}{|c|c|}\hline 11.8 & 7.7 & 6.5 & 6 .8& 9.7 & 6.8 & 7.3 \\ \hline 7.9 & 9.7 & 8.7 & 8.1 & 8.5 & 6.3 & 7.0 \\ \hline 7.3 & 7.4 & 5.3 & 9.0 & 8.1 & 11.3 & 6.3 \\ \hline 7.2 & 7.7 & 7.8 & 11.6 & 10.7 & 7.0 \\ \hline \end{array}\)
