IS THE INTEGRATION OF SIN X/X POSSIBLE? IF NOT THEN WHY?

Expert Answer:

Integral [ (sin(x)/x) dx ] The fact of the matter is, this integral is one that cannot be expressed in terms of elementary functions. There's no way we can solve this using the methods we know; we cannot use integration by parts, partial fractions, substitution, trigonometric substitution, etc to solve this.
