I need help getting the integral of

1/x^(1+a)

I tried using substitution but it didnt work.
I keep getting x/a. Could someone show
me what I am doing wrong.

I take it "a" is a real constant? Substitution is not necessary. Do you know the integral of x^p (where p is a real number)? Do you see how it can be applied here?
