8 Techniques of Integration Over the next few sections we examine some techniques that are frequently successful when seeking antiderivatives of functions. Sometimes this is a simple problem, since it will be apparent that the function you wish to integrate is a derivative in some straightforward way. For example, faced with Z x 10 dx you realize immediately that the derivative of x 11 will supply an x 10 : ( x 11 ) = 11 x 10 . We don’t want the “11”, but constants are easy to alter, because differentiation “ignores” them

Here is a list of those most often used: Z x n dx = x n +1 n + 1 + C, if n ± =-1 Z x-1 dx = ln | x | + C Z e x dx = e x + C 155...

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
