    you can multiply the x into the parenthese and obtain:|dw:1324593176181:dw|, then its just routine

    \[\int\limits_{}^{}(x-x^2) dx=\frac{x^{1+1}}{1+1}-\frac{x^{2+1}}{2+1}+C\] \[\int\limits_{a}^{b}f(x) dx=F(x)|_a^b=F(b)-F(a)\]

    i found the antiderivative now all you have to do is: (just plug in upper limit) then write minus (then plug in lower limit)
