Whenever you find an indefinite integral it is proper to add a constant, as the derivative of a constant is zero. For example ?(u)du = ˝u˛ + C since d(˝u˛ + C)/du = u + 0 = u If you'll notice in skipjack's post, the constants A and B were the so-called constants of integration. It might seem a trivial matter, but could lose you points on an exam. August 30th, 2010, 08:32 AM   #12
