Soooo confused about calculus?!?!?

f ''(θ) = sin θ + cos θ, f(0) = 4, f '(0) = 1

Find:

f(θ) =

I really dont even know where to start or where to find f(θ)!!

    Integrate once to get f'(θ)

    Integrate twice to get f(θ)

    Recall that the integral of sin x = - cos x and the integral of cos x = sin x

    In this case f'(θ) = -cos θ + sin θ + C

    f(θ) = -sin θ - cos θ + C*θ + D

    f(0) = 4, = 0 -1 + 0 + D = 4

    so D = 5

    if f'(0) = 1 then

    1 = -1 + 0 + C

    so C = 2

    Summary:

    f(θ) = -sin θ - cos θ + 2θ + 5

    Hope this is useful. Good luck.
