Homework Help: Antiderivatives (find f for )

  1. Mar 20, 2010 #1
    Antiderivatives - 8x - 3 sec^2x

    Im not sure whether my answer to this antiderivative question is correct and would like your opinion.

    1. The antiderivative statement asks: Find f

    2. f prime (x) = 8x - 3 sec^2x
    Most general antiderivative = F(x) + C
    Antidefferentiation formula: Function = sec^2, Particular antiderivative = tan x


    3. My attempt at a solution
    = [(8x^2)/2] - 3tan x
    = 4x^2 - 3tan x


    Is this correct?
