Finding the integral of x^a using a geometric progression

  1. Jan 24, 2005 #1
    Let's say [tex] y = x^a [/tex] and you want to find [tex] \int^b_a x^a [/tex]

    How would you find this using a geometric progression?

    Thanks

    1.U forgot "dx" in the integral...
    2.I'm sure u cannot use geometric progression,if [itex] a=-1 [/itex]
    3.Do u know how to work with Riemann sums???
