Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes, x^1.005. is this right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5good, so you have to integrate it now, (with respect to x, i'm assuming) \[\int x^{1.005}\,\mathrm dx\] are you given limits or not?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes dx and also i am given the limits, but i am wondering on how to integrate that first.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the limits arent necessary at this moment, am i correct? or is it?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5the general case is \[\int x^n\,\mathrm dx = \frac{x^{n+1}}{n+1}+c\] for the indefinite integral and \[\int\limits_{x_i}^{x_f} x^n\,\mathrm dx = \left.\frac{x^{n+1}}{n+1}\right_{x=x_i}^{x=x_f}\] for the definite integral

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5i remember it as: "add one to the index, and divide by the new index"

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so the integration is the same before substituting the values of limits right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yeah, that's what i did, but in the solution i have here, it says its integral is (200/x^0.005)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1my answer is x^0.005/0.005

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5what is 1/0.005 equal to?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1oh wait, is it because 0.005 is 1/200?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i just entered on the calcu. lol

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yeah im having second thoughts lol. maybe the solution made the x the denominator again?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1but now im confused where the negative came from. the answer is (200/x^0.005)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5x^(1.005) x^(0.005) / 0.005 = 200 x^(0.005) = 200 / x^(0.005)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1oh yes of course i forgot its 0.005 not 0.005. haha. hey thanks man, appreciate the help

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5if this is the indefinite integral (no limits) don't forget to +c
