Small problem

  1. Oct 30, 2004 #1
    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?

    Oh I see

    now I got -(x^-a/a)

    is this correct?
