# $I= \int \limits_0^{\frac{\pi}{2}} \sin ^2 x dx$ find the value of I

$\begin {array} {1 1} (a)\;\frac{\pi}{2} \\ (b)\;\frac{\pi}{4} \\ (c)\;1 \\ (d)\;0 \end {array}$

Can you answer this question?

$I=\int \limits _0 ^ {\frac{\pi}{2}}$$\bigg(\large\frac{1- \cos 2x}{2}\bigg)$$dx$
$I= \large\frac{1}{2} \bigg(\frac{\pi}{2} - \frac{\sin 2x}{2} \bigg)_0^{\pi/2}$
$\qquad= \large\frac{1}{2} \bigg(\large\frac{\pi}{2}-0\bigg)$
$\qquad=\large\frac{\pi}{4}$
Hence b is the correct answer.
