Solution

If f '(x) = `1/"x" + "x"` and f(1) = `5/2`, then f(x) = log x + `"x"^2/2` + 2

Explanation:

f(x) = ∫f '(x) dx

`= int (1/"x" + "x")` dx

f(x) = log |x| + `"x"^2/2 + "c"`   ...(i)

f(1) = `5/2`

f(1) = log 1 + `1^2/2` + c

∴ `5/2 = 0 + 1/2 + "c"`

∴ c = 2

∴ f(x) = log |x| + `"x"^2/2` + 2
