# Applying the General Power Rule In Exercises 9-34, find the indefinite integral. Check your result by differentiating. See Examples 1, 2, 3, and 5. ∫ ( x  - 1 ) 4   d x

To determine

To calculate: The value of the provided indefinite integral (x1)4dx.

Explanation

Given Information:

The provided indefinite integral is (x1)4dx.

Formula Used:

According to the general power rule for integration,

If u is a differentiable function of x, then

undu=un+1n+1+C,

where n1

Calculation:

Consider the indefinite integral say I,

I=(x1)4dx

Let

x1=u … (1)

Differentiate the above equation with respect to x;

ddx(x1)=dudxddx(x)+ddx(1)=dudx1=dudx

Or

dx=du … (2)

Substitute the values of x1 and dx from equations (1) and (2) respectively in the provided integral

I=u4du

Now, ap
