4. i know that rule just doesn't seem correct

5. Something went terribly wrong with your ALGEBRA (not calculus).
It should be (5/x) + C

The second line is correst, but you have simplified it incorrectly, also the boxed identity is correct but seems to have no relevance to the rest.

The -1 exponent in line two applies only to the x not to the 5, also (-5)/(-1) = 5
