    so this isn't much harder than the ones you've been posting, just rewrite so you can use the power rule

    Have you learned the integration rules? This is a basic integral, and if you're wanting to solve harder integrals it's imperative you take the time to learn these simple ones.

    int(6/(x^2) + 16/(13x)dx) = int(6/(x^2)dx) + int(16/(13x)dx)

    = int(6*x^(-2)dx) + int(16/3*(1/x)dx
    = (6*x^(-1))/-1 +

    = -6/x + (16/13)*ln(x) + C

    moderators are veterans, they've been with this site for a long time, i've just been here for a little over a month i think

    and also, i'm not smart enough to be one those guys are way out of my league

    ah man, i forgot to do that, "this is my 8th post" thing, which seems to be a custom on this site.

    i understand, i just got a simple interest question wrong, lol. i know the times when you're not at the top of your game, rushing last minute and doing math after not sleeping for 48 hours are such times
