00:00 So let's see how you got on with the first set of integration questions.

00:05 Have a look at the first exercise and the first question.

00:09 We're asked to integrate 5x squared plus 3x minus 2dx.

00:18 Now remember what I said, don’t worry about the dx, it's just there saying, "with respect to x." So it's nothing really that needs integrating or any sort of mathematical stuff done to it.

00:30 So, let's have a go with integrating where we're going to integrate each individual term nice and straightforward.

00:35 Remember the rules for integration; add 1 to the power and divide by a new power.

00:40 So, when I add 1 to the power of X squared, I get 5x cubed over 3.

00:47 So remember to divide by the new power, not the old one.

00:50 So these numbers should be the same.

00:52 You then add 1 to the power of X to the 1, that goes to 3x square over 2.

01:00 Do you remember what to do with the constants? So with differentiation, the constants disappeared.

01:05 And in this case, remember to multiply it with an x value.

01:10 So this is actually increasing rather than going away.

01:13 So this becomes minus 2x.

01:16 And then don’t forget, when you're dealing with indefinite integration to put a plus C at the end.

01:22 You can find this plus C if you knew X values and Y values.

01:26 You could have just substituted them in.

01:28 But as a general rule, when we do indefinite integration, we always put a plus C at the end t o show that we appreciate that there is a constant at the end.

01:37 That constant could be zero sometimes.

01:39 So it could be that there is no value and that constant could be any number.

01:43 But still, to be fully correct, just as we do with differentiation, any constants go away, we add a C to any indefinite integral.
