Here's the question: Find the most general antiderivative of the function. Use C for any needed constant. f(x) = 5x1/6 - 6x5/6
So what I did was I took the exponents and added one to them, which gave me 7/6 and 11/6. I then divided these exponents but the coefficient number (ie. 5/(7/6)) and got 30/7 and 36/11
So, it looked like this:
30/7(x)^(7/6) - 36/11(x)^(11/6)
But this isn't right? =\
Thanks for any help!
