Assuming that by X you mean x, that's a straightforward polynomial.

$x(x B)= x^2 Bx$ Do you know the antiderivative of $x^2$? Bx?

in my view the correct answer is ((L^2)/6)*(2L3B) but the book i am referencing shows the answer to be ((L^2)/6)*(2L3B) + B^3 I dont understand where the B^3 came from

$\int_0^L (x^2  Bx) dx = \left[\dfrac{x^3}{3}  \dfrac{Bx^2}{2}\right]_0^L = \dfrac{L^3}{3}  \dfrac{BL^2}{2} = ((L^2)/6)*(2L3B)$ Please post the full question as it appears in the text.
