For problems 31 – 33, use the constant functions f(x)=4 and g(x)=3 on the interval [0,2]. Calculate each integral and verify that the value obtained in part (a) is not equal to the value in part (b).

31. (a)  \int_{0}^{2} f(x) \mathrm{dx} \cdot \int_{0}^{2} \mathrm{~g}(x) \mathrm{d} \mathrm{x}         (b) \int_{0}^{2} \mathrm{f}(x) \cdot \mathrm{g}(x) \mathrm{dx}\)

33. (a)  \int_{0}^{2} \mathrm{f}^{2}(x) \mathrm{dx}                             (b) \left(\int_{0}^{2} f(x) d x\right)^{2}

For problems 35 – 41, sketch the graph of the integrand function and use it to help evaluate the integral.

For problems 47 – 49, state whether the function is (a) continuous on [1,4], (b) differentiable on [1,4] , and (c) integrable on [1,4].

47. f in Fig. 15
