    If n is a known positive integer, for what value of K is \[\int\limits_{1}^{k}x ^{n-1}dx=\frac{ 1 }{ n }\] ?

    So let's just start from scratch, I'll bet we can figure this out. \[\large \int\limits_1^k x^{n-1}dx\]Taking the integral gives us,\[\huge \frac{1}{n}x^n|_1^k\] Evaluated at k and 1 gives us (I'm factoring the 1/n out first),\[\large \color{purple}{\frac{1}{n}\left(k-1\right)}\] And they're asking, When does \(\color{purple}{\textbf{this}}\) equal \(\dfrac{1}{n}\)

    \[\large \frac{1}{n}\left(k^n-1^n\right)\]When does THIS equal \(\dfrac{1}{n}\)
