find the antiderivative of 1/(x^2)

3. The attempt at a solution

I'm pretty sure you just find the antiderivatives of the numerator and the denominator.

the antiderivative of 1 is x.

the antiderivative of x^2 is (x^3)/3

mutliply the numerator by the inverse of the deominator and you get 3/(x^2)

The book says the answer is -1/x
