    Hint. \[\int\limits_{?}^{?} t ^{4} =\frac{ t ^{4+1} }{ 4+1}\]

    I honestly don't even know how to solve or begin to solve for it.. can you help me step by step? I have 7 more problems like this and I'd like to do them all myself.. But I need help solving and the steps to do so.

    are you familiar with the general formula of integration?

    I'm familiar with... \[\int\limits_{a}^{b} f(x)dx=F(x)|_{a}^{b} = F(b)-F(a)\]

    ya this is done when we apply the limits but do you know how we do integration?

    the general formula for integration of \(\int x^n dx = \frac{x^n+1}{n+1} +C\)

    @winterfez i believe that's \(\left[ \frac{1}{2} \frac{t^5}{5}+\frac{1}{4} \frac{t^4}{4}- \frac{t^2}{2} \right]^0_{-2}\)

    \[(\frac{ 1 }{ 2 }\frac{ 0 }{ 5 }+\frac{ 1 }{ 4 }\frac{ 0^{4} }{ 4 }-\frac{ 0 }{ 2 })-(\frac{ 1 }{ 2 }\frac{ (-2)^5 }{ 5 }+\frac{ 1 }{ 4 }\frac{ (-2)^4 }{ 4 }-\frac{ (-2)^{2} }{ 2 })\]

    ∫abf(x)dx=F(x)|ba=F(b)−F(a) <--this is why.

    oh okay (: is that the answer though? because what happens with the .... +C?

    well. that's for indefinite integrals because you don't know where is the limit. the C is gone when it is definite.
