Wrong integration?

Here's the solution presented:

In the last line, shouldn't it be
$\displaystyle \frac{1}{0.8}\cos(\frac{x}{0.8})$

and not
$\displaystyle 0.8\cos(\frac{x}{0.8})$?

No, as the derivative of $0.8\cos(\frac{\Large x}{\large0.8})$ is $-\sin(\frac{\Large x}{\large0.8})$, as required.
