1. ## integration

hi,

i need to know how to integrate this:

(integrate sign with 2 at top and -2 at bottom) 6x^2+1 dx

i know how to start it:

=[6x^3/3+x] (2 at top of bracket, -2 at bottom)

but its after this im stuck. im not sure how to simplify 6x^3/3?
after this part i cant do i should be able to complete it but im not sure how to simplify it.
could somone please help me on this part?!?

thanks!

You're just expected to use the fact that $\displaystyle \frac{6}{3}=2$.

Edit: I highly suggest revising your algebra skills before continuing with calculus because calculus will be an uphill struggle until your algebra skills are refined.
