need some help im doin antiderivatives it has (2-x^2)^4xdx i understand how to do it for the most part but i come up with 1/5(2-x^2)^5+c the book has a answer of -1/10(2-x^2)^5+c how what am i doing wrong

How do you go from ln(x^10)+e^ln(x) to 10ln(x)+x
9. ### Calculus

if you have g(x)=ln(x^10)+e^ln(x) would you just get 1/x^10+e^ln(x) or am i wrong the way it was explained to me that with e the derivative is just wat it is you don't change it

Percent to a fraction, all you have to do is lets take 85% we put 85/100. so just take your percent set it over 100 and reduce we get 17/20
24. ### Algebra 1

a decimal to a percent ok so allyou have to do is take the decimal .625 and multiply by 100 you use 100 because 100% is going to give you the percentage out of 100 which is what we use. so by multiplying by 100 we know that we just need to move the decimal two places to the ...
25. ### Algebra 1

ok so for instance you have 5/8 all you need to do is divide 5 by 8. whic if you do the math you will get .625. Or even easier to use things that are easy to divide by so 6/10 ok so if you divide 6 by 10 all you have to do is move the decimal so you get .6. You use the same ...

I could be wrong but im not sure i came up with 1/4
29. ### Calc

sorry about that a shouldnt b in there it should be f(x)=(2x^2)+(1/sqrt(x))+[(1/4)x^3]-x+1 the a thing was supposed to be a sqrt but i guess it doesnt copy over from work
30. ### Calc

Just making sure im doing things right. suppose that f(x)=2x^2+1/ãx+1/4 x^3-x+1 Caclulate f '(1) So far i have 4x+(ãx^-1)+3/4 x^2-1+0 then i substituted my 1 in and came out with 4 3/4
