The second entry is the antiderivative form I want. Is there any way to achieve this?

This should generate the antiderivative result you want Code: `int(x^(1/3)/x)` [attachment=7907] RE: Indefinite Integrals - Aries - 12-09-2019 01:19 PM 3*x^(4/3), I think you mean The point here is, x^(1/3) is not the cubic root of x, that is true only for x>=0. For x<0 the NthRoot function is not equivalent to ^(1/n).

For x<0 the NthRoot function is not equivalent to ^(1/n). Oops yeah that's what I meant. It was late at night. Is there another way to explain why the calculator does this? I don't fully understand. It makes more complex antiderivatives (and just about everything with fractional exponents) very messy.
