(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

[tex]

\int {x^2 ,d(x^4)}

[/tex]

2. Relevant equations

as a starter; the previous problem was:

[tex]

\int {x^2 ,d(x^2)}

[/tex]

and I managed to solve this by letting u=x^2 then integrating u:

[tex]

\int {u}

[/tex]

=[tex]

\frac{x^4}{2}+C

[/tex]

3. The attempt at a solution

can someone please explain the thoery behind this?

my textbook gives no explanation and i dont really know what im looking for...

I tried following the working from the previous problem through, but got (x^6)/3 when the answer was supposed to be 2(x^6)/3

thanks in advance

Steven
