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

(x^2+3x-1)/x^4 the answer is,(-x^-1)-(3/2)(x^-2)+(1/3)(x^-3)+C

2. Relevant equations

Just reverse diferentiation

3. The attempt at a solution

=x^2+3x-1+x^-4

=(x^3)/(3)+(3x^2)/(2)-x+(1/3)(x^-3+C)

(1/3)(x^3)+(3/2)(x^2)-x+(1/3)(x^-3)+C

I know i got the answer but somehow it is backwards(exponents mostly). What am I doing wrong?
