What will be the integration of INT[min(sinx,cosx)] Whose Limit is 0 to π What is min(sinx,cosx) How can I solve this? And I have one more question INT[minx3x+2] Limit is 2 to 2 Plz help!

You can assume that min(x, y) denotes the minimum of the two values, so that min(sin(x), cos(x)) will be sin(x) for x ∈ [0, $\pi$/4] and cos(x) for x ∈ [$\pi$/4, $\pi$]. The second question appears to be mistyped.

Are you saying you do not know how to integrate sin(x) and cos(x)? If so, you had better talk to your teacher about this.

@Country boy Well I know how to integrate sinx and cosx but I was doing this separately and was not adding them so I didn't get the ans and that's why I asked him to solve completely. Anyways Thanks!

Skipjack told you that "min(sin(x), cos(x)) will be sin(x) for x ∈ [0, π/4] and cos(x) for x ∈ [π/4,π]." Integrate that!

I did this already and got my ans. I was saying something else but let it be!
