Indefinite Integrals - dalukner - 12-09-2019 06:35 AM
The calculator gives the antiderivative shown in the first entry. The second entry is the antiderivative form I want. Is there any way to achieve this? [attachment=7903] RE: Indefinite Integrals - Stevetuc - 12-09-2019 12:57 PM

3*x^(4/3), I think you mean The point here is, x^(1/3) is not the cubic root of x, that is true only for x>=0. For x<0 the NthRoot function is not equivalent to ^(1/n). Best, Aries RE: Indefinite Integrals - dalukner - 12-09-2019 06:24 PM

I don't fully understand. It makes more complex antiderivatives (and just about everything with fractional exponents) very messy. |
