Homework Help: Quick integrating question (part of a series question)

    Quick integrating question....(part of a series question)

    Still studying for my exam...

    Came across this example and I don't know what the method is for integrating this type of problem? (I'm using it to do the integral test for series). How did they get rid of the x^3? thanks for the help :-)

    Well what's the derivative of -1/3 * exp(-x^3)?

    Or: let u= x2 so that du= 3x2 dx.
