**Answer This Question**

Need help, why is the first method wrong

∫(upper limit: 0, lower limit: -2) 1/2x^2 + 5dx

= ∫(lower -2, upper 0) ½x² dx + ∫(lower -2, upper 0) 5 dx

= [(⅓)½x³] - [5x]

= [1/6 (0³) - 1/6 (-2)³] - [5(0) - 5(2)]

= [-1/6 (-8) ] - [-10]

= 4/3 + 10

= 11⅓

∫(lower -2, upper 0) (½x² + 5) dx

= ½∫(lower -2, upper 0) x² dx + ∫(lower -2, upper 0) 5 dx

= ½[⅓x³] + [5x]

= ½[⅓x³] + ½[10x]

= ½ [⅓x³ + 10x]

= ½ [ (⅓(0³) + 10(0)) - (⅓(-2)³ + 10(-2)) ]

= ½[-(-8/3 - 20)]

= ½ (8/3 + 20)

= ½ (22⅔)

= 11⅓
