Anti-derivative question calculus?
Hi I am stuck on this problem and need some guided help. I know one is usually added to the exponent to the numerator and denominator , but after that I am confused on this one. The answer was (2X - 3)^/ + C .
The problem : Evaluate the antiderivative ---> (curved S sign I don't know how to represent but its antiderivative of (2x - 3) ^ 4 dx

You can definitely use a substitution.
∫(2x - 3)^4 dx
z = 2x - 3 => dz/2 = dx
1/2*∫z^4 dz = 1/10 * z^5 + C
= 1/10 * (2x - 3)^5 + C

I can't answer, only assist. You will end up with 2 possible answers though, the more obvious of the 2 being the derivative, the other being the anti-derivative. Sorry I can't be more help though
