Integrate 1/x^3

  1. Apr 27, 2004 #1

    ive got a really simple question, but im just slightly confused,
    im trying to integrate 1/x^3 , now i take x^3 to the top and i get x^-3, and now when i intergrate that i get:

    x^-2/-2 (i think)
    now when i put it back into fractional form do i get:

    -2/x^2 or -1/2x^2 ?

    (x^-2)/-2 = -1/(2x^2)
