    Math teacher trying to be funny

    Hi everybody, is it too hot to go ouside where you live as well?

    My teacher gave us this problem and said something about the derivative of the antiderivative is the function itself. Here is the function:

    d/dx integral from x^1/3 to x^2 ( csc y / y ) dy
    (sorry I don't know how to make the integral look better on my iPhone)

    If anyone can give me a hint on where to start that would be great.

    Thanks!
    Alex

    The second fundamental theorem of calc:

    \frac{d}{dx}\int_{h(x)}^{g(x)}f(t)dt=f(g(x))g'(x)-f(h(x))h'(x)

    So, you have:

    \frac{csc(x^{2})}{x^{2}}(2x)-\frac{csc(x^{\frac{1}{3}})}{x^{\frac{1}{3}}}(\frac  {1}{3}x^{\frac{-2}{3}})

    =\frac{6sin(x^{\frac{1}{3}})-sin(x^{2})}{3xsin(x^{\frac{1}{3}})sin(x^{2})}

    thanks

    You are the best, I filled in the simplifications and got the answer just like you, that was very helpful.

    Thanks again.
