An object traveling in a straight line has position x(t) at time t. If the initial position is x(0) = 2 and velocity of the object is v(t) = (1 + t), what is the position of the object at time t = 3?

I know that the answer is 6.512. I just don't know how to show that. Would you please show me how to solve this?

The two velocity functions you wrote are identical. Is there not another 't' in the function, i.e. v(t)=t(1+t)?

Ultraglide, you are right. It was a typo. It should have been
v(t)= (1 + (t)).....only the t should have been squared.

I did figure how to do it. Since the integral of v(t) from 0 to 3= x(3)-x(0)=x(3)- 2 , then 2 + that same integral = x(3) which gives 6.51153

Maybe I should rephrase that. Are you sure the velocity function is correct?

Are you sure the antiderivative is correct?
