# Math Help - integrate

1. ## integrate

Hi, how come when I integrate $5/sqrtx$ the correct answer is $10(sqrtx) + C$

I get $5(sqrtx) + C$ ?

2. $\dfrac{5}{\sqrt{x}} = 5x^{-1/2}$

When integrating add one to the power and divide by the new power - Remember that dividing by 1/2 is the same as multiplying by 2.
