I have been asking this question, but I never seem to get a direct answer.... Is there any type of formula to find an antiderivative?
finding an anti derivative is based on these steps:
1) Known formula,which gives an immediate integral
now,when things get serious,you have to use at least one of those:
2)U substitution
3)Integration by parts
4)Partial Fractions
5)Trig substitution
6)complete the square
that`s about it i think
