    derivative of t of an integral wrt x

    derivative of t of an integral wrt x-screen-shot-2012-12-12-7.04.52-pm.png

    this is the derivative WRT t of the integral from 1 to t of f(x) WRT x


    WRT=with respect to

    this is asking 'what is the derivative or rate of change WRT t of the function you took the derivative of WRT x to get 1/(x^3+x+1)'

    am i reading this right? and if so what is the procedure to solve it?

    I think anti-derive the expression (x^3+x+1)^(-1) WRT x and then evaluate that at t and then take it's derivative WRT t.

    Am I on the right track?

    also how would I find the anti-derivative of (x^3+x+1)^-1 since the derivative of 1/x is ln|x| would it be ln|3x^2+1|?

    thanks!

    Integrate and evaluate at the limits. Since the upper limit is t, the result of the integration will be a function of t. Then differentiate.

    Yours as well as reply #2 is a pure waste of time.

    If each of f~\&~g is a differentiable function then:
    \frac{d}{{dt}}\left[ {\int_{g(t)}^{f(t)} {h(x)dx} } \right] = f'(t)h(f(t)) - g'(t)h(g(t))

    Plato is right. What you need to know is the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus. Plato gave you the general formula, but this one is the one you'll use most of the time:

    \frac{d}{dt}\int_c^th(x)dx=h(t)

    where c is a constant.
