Transcript

we are going to find anti-derivative for the function f of x is equal to x plus 1 times 2x minus 1. for antiderivative this just means that we are going to do the derivative backwards however here we have a polynomial times another polynomial so in this situation it doesn't matter if you want to do the regular derivative with the derivative backwar...

Questions & Answers

Q: What is the difference between finding a derivative and finding an antiderivative?

Finding a derivative involves taking the derivative backward, while finding an antiderivative involves reversing the derivative process.

Q: How do you apply the regular power rule for derivatives?

For x to the n power, the derivative is n times x to the n minus one.

Q: When should the backward power rule be used?

The backward power rule should be used when finding the antiderivative of a polynomial function.

Q: How can the backward power rule be applied to find the antiderivative of a polynomial function?

To find the antiderivative, add one to the exponent and divide by the new exponent for each term in the polynomial function.

Summary & Key Takeaways

  • Antiderivatives involve finding the derivative backward, and for polynomial functions, the backward power rule is used.

  • The regular power rule for derivatives involves bringing the exponent to the front and subtracting one.

  • The backward power rule for antiderivatives involves adding one to the exponent and dividing by the new exponent.
