    HI people, this will be kindergarden hw for you guys. PLease help! THANKS ALOT!

    S=integral sign

    10
    S t^3 dt=f(x)
    x

    f'(x)=?
    I say f'(x)=t^3, but it's not correct. WHY?

    First, find the indefinite integral of t3 dt, then evaluate it from t=x to t=10. Only after you've completed that can you differentiate the resultant expression with respect to x.

    so the indefinite integral of t^3 dt is t^4/4

    then evaluate it from t=x to t=10

    10^4/4-x^4/4

    then differentiate this expression

    0-x^3

    it's correct!!!!!... I am dumb THANX ALOT fOR The fAsT repLY !!!
