    Primitive funktion

    Need a little help here... :P

    what is the primitive funktion of:

    (0,5x^2)^2

    and what is the way of finding it?

    Best regards

    I don't understand the equation you wrote down...

    The primitive function is the antiderivative.

    So if the function were (5x^2)^2=25x^4

    then the primitive function is 5x^5 because when you take its derivative, you get 25x^4

    aha, it was the outer square of the equation that had me dazzled.

    the equation was: ((x^2)/2)^2

    so that correct answer should be:
    0,05x^5?

    Thanx for the quick reply by the way

    The answer would be \frac{x^5}{20}+C

    the C is necessary because its some unknown constant.

    Not in this case

    I was looking for the primitiv form in a integral so the C is not necessery this time

    Thank you for the help!
    Really appreciate it
