    can you show your sork? what did you get for du? what did you get for dx?

    U = 6-2x du = -2dx \[(1/2) \int\limits_{}^{} -2U^2dx\] @TuringTest

    I'm not seeing where you get the -2 from... u=6-2x du=-2dx -> dx=-du/2

    It's to get du right ? so I multiply by 1 pretty much 2/2

    you have left your integral all mixed up with u integrated with respect to x; you can't do that. I think you are getting confused there. you need to sub in the values: u=6-2x du=-2dx -> dx=-du/2 subbing in for u and dx gives\[\int u^2(-\frac{du}2)=-\frac12\int u^2du\]

    We weren't taught how to solve for dx and plug back in but I like that way!

    I sort of never saw them do it in class that way either, I never understood why :p

    @TuringTest What answer are you getting ? I get \[\frac{-(6-2x)^{3}}{6} +c\] But my TI-89 is giving me\[\frac{4(x-3)^{3}}{3} +C\]

    it is the same answer; they appear to have factored out a -2 in your TI-89
