    integral/algebra simplification help needed

    Hey guys, im trying to integrate this with respect to x from 0-1.

    Heres the integral: x\cdot \left( \frac{1}{\theta } \right)x^{\frac{1}{\theta }}-1

    and heres where im stuck from this point on: any help would be great.

    integrated, but not evaluated from 0-1:
    \frac{x^{\frac{1}{\theta }+1}}{\frac{1}{\theta }+1}\cdot \frac{1}{\theta }

    You should have simplified the integrand to \displaystyle \begin{align*} \left(\frac{1}{\theta}\right)x^{\frac{1}{\theta} + 1} - 1 \end{align*} first.
