    I got 2/3(x^3/2)+2(x^1/2)+C however it is stated to be wrong

    Sure x^1/2 + 1/4 x^-1/2 (x^3/2)/(3/2)+(1/4)(x^1/2)/(1/2)

    Am I missing a step?

    That looks good to me. Now what is \[\Large \frac{1/4}{1/2}?\]

    Almost. \[\Large \frac{1/4}{1/2}=\frac{2}{4}=\frac{1}{2}\]In general, \[\Large \frac{a/b}{c/d}=\frac{ad}{bc}\]

    so then instead of the 2√x its 1/2√x?

    That looks right to me.

    ok 2/3(x^3/2)+1/2(x^1/2) is the correct answer?

    With a +C at the end.
