$\displaystyle \int (3x+1)^5\ dx \ \mbox{limits - lower} (-1), \mbox{upper -} \ (1 )
\mbox{answer I get is 2080/3 \ is this correct?} $
also - is there a way to write limits on the integral line?
nope, sorry. show your work
yes, type \int_{lower limit goes here}^{upper limit goes here} to get the limits on the integral signalso - is there a way to write limits on the integral line?
so you would type [tex]\int_{-1}^{1}(3x + 1)^5~dx[/tex] to get $\displaystyle \int_{-1}^{1}(3x + 1)^5~dx$
To write subscript, use "_{script}", or, if the script is only one character long, "_s". To write superscript, use "^{script}", or "^s" for a single character. Please note that superscript and subscript can be written on top of each other, and in any place. For example, we have:
n_0^1
...yields...
$\displaystyle n_0^1$
So, for an integral, we just make the integral sign and then the limits...
\int_0^5dx
$\displaystyle \int_0^5dx$
For super/subscript longer than one character:
\int_{genesis}^{deuteronomy}inerrancy\;d(pentateuc h)=mosaic\;law
$\displaystyle \int_{genesis}^{deuteronomy}inerrancy\;d(pentateuc h)=mosaic\;law$
