I was asked to show how the position operator is not communitative in the Shrodinger Wave equation. I thought it was as it is simply mulitplication

[x]=integral from negative to positive infinite over f*(x,t) x f(x,t) dx

Can anyone help shed some light on this. I may have misunderstood the question

[tex]\hat{x}=\int^{-\infty}_{+\infty}\Psi^{*}\left(x,t\right) x \Psi\left(x,t\right) dx[/tex]
