I am saying the integral from 200 to x. The derivative of the original function comes to (-200^2.5/t^2.5). When you take the integral should it not come to (-1-(200^2.5/x^2.5) instead of...

Y1 = X1 + X2 and Y2 = X1/X2.

Then 2nd equation implied that X1 = Y2X2.

Plug that into first equation to get

Y1 = Y2X2 + X2 = X2(Y2+1) i.e. X2 = Y1/(Y2+1)

You know that X1 = Y2X2 =...

Yes and that rule is called "geometric sum".

in the second line it says sum of (1/5)^k * p0 = p0 / 1-(1/5). Is this a general rule?
