    Anti-Derivative

    I was wondering the anit-derivative of (4x^2+2)x^-1 ? I think it's something along the lines of 2x^2+lnx^2+C. I know thats wrong and I can't seem to figure this out.

    If what you mean what is integral(4x-2)/x what you would do is break apart the integrand into 4x-2/x and from there you can see that it is 2x+2ln|x|+C...but I dont think that is what you mean considering how easy that is...

    Don't worry it happens to us all...once I integrated the (x-a)^(1/2) very young was so proud...but then got it wrong because I forgot +C lol...it happens to us all
