f I consider the area of the family of curves as y = (1 - x^1/p)^n where x is greater than or equal to zero but less than or equal to one, I can write that in as integral as(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

the integral from 0 to 1 of (1 - x^1/p)^n dx but I'm not sure how to write that as a summation, which I have been trying to do. I know the summation looks like:

summation from k=0 to n ((-1)^k (n k) p/(p+k))

Can you please help me with this?
