I am stuck on this problem: the integral of 1/x^(1/3) from -1 to 8.

I have broken it up into the integral from -1 to 0 and 0 to 8. I am confused as to how the negative values under a cubed root affect things and whether or not I need to break it up further.

I am not sure whether the limit as n goes to -1 of 3/2(x)^(2/3) is real or imaginary. As if -1 is squared first it becomes real but if not then it is imaginary. We haven't done anything on imaginary integrals in class
