    \[\begin{align*}\mathcal L\left\{\int\limits_0^tx(u)\cdot\text du\right\} &=\int\limits_0^\infty\left(\int\limits_0^tx(u)\cdot\text du\right)e^{-pt}\cdot\text dt\\ &=\\ &=\\ &=\end{align*}\]

    I'm guessing that this involve integration by parts...

    Well, if we say that \(X(t)\) is the antiderivative of \(x(t)\)....then \[ X(t) = \int_0^tx(u)\cdot du \]and \(X'(t)=x(t)\) So the antiderivative is going to be dependent on \(t\) and yet the derivative is constant...?

    wolfram tells me the answer is \[\frac{\mathcal L\{x(t)\}}{p}=\frac1p\int\limits_0^\infty x(t)e^{-pt}\text dt\]

    Okay nevermind what I said before, it looks like what you are doing is correct.

    \[\begin{align*}&=\int\limits_0^\infty x(u)\int\limits_0^ue^{-pt}\cdot\text dt\cdot\text du\\ &=\int\limits_0^\infty x(u) \frac{e^{-pt}}{-p}\Big|_0^u\cdot\text du\\ &=\int\limits_0^\infty x(u) \frac{1-e^{-pu}}p\cdot\text du\\\end{align*}\]
