INT[-8 to -1] x - x^2 / 2*x^(1/3) dx(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

(x - x^2)*(2x^(-1/3))

Distributed:

2x^(2/3) - 2x^(5/3)

[6x^(5/3) / 5] -[ 3x^(8/3) / 4]

Plug in -1, and -8

-1.2 - -.75 = -.45

-38.4 - - 192 = 153.6

-.45 - 153.6 = -154.05

When I put this into the calculator straight to check my work, I get 57.112 as the answer. What did I do wrong here?
