    \[\left({1 \over t}\right)^2 ={1 \over t^2}=t^{-2}\]From here, you can use the reverse power rule to integrate, and then evaluate.

    answer is D, 1/t^2 = t^-2, integral of that is -1/t

    \[\large \int\limits_3^5 t^{-2}\;\; dt =-\,{1 \over t} \;\;\Big|^5_3=-\,{1 \over 5} + {1 \over 3}\]From this, you get that the answer is \(2/15\)

    \[\large \int\limits t^{-2} dt = {1 \over -2+1}\cdot t^{-2+1}=-1 t^{-1}=-\,{1 \over t}\]

    ah this is too complex. no easier way to solve this?

    This is just the reverse of the power rule. In general, \[\large \int\limits x^n\;\; dx ={1 \over n+1}\cdot x^{n+1}\]Where I just used \(n=-2\)
