I am taking an Architectural Geometry class, and have only had Precal. We just started antiderivatives (I understand regular derivatives), and had a question:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have to find the antiderivative of

(-5/12 x^4) + (10/3 x^3) - (103/12 x^2) + (23/3 x)

I think I use the power rule for antiderivates...so far i have the first function to be

(-5/12 x^5)/(5)

is that right? if so, does it simplify to -.083x^5? This is where i get confused. Later on I will need to plug in a variable for x. I just wanted to make sure that I am doing this right so far. Thank you.
