When they ask you to set up integral formulas for the derivative of 1/(x+1), would you use the fundemental theorem of calculus and set up a definite integral, or an indefinite integral. Can someone help me clarify this?

Thanks

Integral formulas are (almost to my knowledge) expressed in indefinite inegrals, since all you need is an antiderivative of the integrand.

i.e.
[tex]\int\frac{dx}{x}=\ln x+C[/tex]
