Why are these two integrals undefined?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1) [tex] \int_{-1}^{1} \frac{\,dx}{x^{\frac{4}{3}}} [/tex]

2) [tex] \int_{3}^{6} \frac{\,dx}{5-x} [/tex]

I got real answers for both, the first one 0, and the second one ln(2), but I think I'm in serious violation of the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus.
