Hello,

I get antiderivatives and the idea behind them. But I still don't really comprehend how to apply it towards a fraction.

We know that [itex]\int (\frac{1}{x}) dx = ln|x|[/itex]

So would the antiderivative of [itex]\int (\frac{4}{x}) dx = 4(ln x)[/itex] ?

But here is a fraction I just am not sure where to start?

[itex]\int (\frac{4}{3x^2}) dx[/itex]

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
