Does a computer algebra system give an exact result for an indefinite integral? Explain.
Problem 2EDoes a computer algebra system give an exact result for an indefinite integral Explain.SolutionStep 1In this problem we have to check whether the computer algebra system gives an exact result for an indefinite integral or not. Computer algebra system is any mathematical software with the ability to manipulate mathematical expressions in a way similar to the traditional manual computations of mathematicians and scientists. Sometimes a Computer Algebra System may not know how to integrate a particular function, sometimes it may integrate incorrectly, and other times it may give the answer in a strange form which does not match the answer we would expect. We illustrate it with an exampleUse your computer algebra system to evaluate . The result will be But the actual integration is So a computer algebra system does not give an exact result for an indefinite integral.
