Integral Fail
The Prime and CASIO Classpad 2 both fail to integrate the indefinite integral
(3 NROOT x^2 2*x + 1)^4 The NSpire is successful, produces (3*(x1)^(11/3))/11 Any guidance on how to enter the integral differently so that the Prime can handle it?

RE: Integral Fail
It's a bit cumbersome, but you have to do this:
factor(x^22*x1) > (x1)^2 Therefore: factor(int(((x1)^2)^(4/3),x)) > (3*(x1)^3*((x1)^(1/3))^2)/11 Welcome those who have a less cumbersome answer!

RE: Integral Fail
I apologize:
factor(x^22*x+1) > (x1)^2 Therefore: factor(int(((x1)^2)^(4/3),x)) > (3*(x1)^3*((x1)^(1/3))^2)/11

RE: Integral Fail
The problem is that the Prime doesn't do the factorization itself.

RE: Integral Fail
Perhaps the peoblem comes from xCas...

RE: Integral Fail
Hi Albert,
Are you sure about this? When I do this problem using numerical integration On the Prime, Classpad, and TI30X Pro Math Print, I get 3.46+ which equals the “correct” NSpire result. This does not agree with your result (unless I am doing something wrong...).

RE: Integral Fail
Here comes the problem that always puts me in difficulty. If I set CAS without "use i to factor polynomials" I get:
sqrt((x1)^2) > abs(x1) and the integral int(abs(x1)^(8/3),x) takes the form proposed by Albert Chan. However, if I set CAS with "use i to factor polynomials", the result takes the form of "robmio" and, for negative "x" values, the result of the integral gives a complex number. So what is the correct result?

RE: Integral Fail
I’m sorry...I was integrating from 1 to 3. Do you get the same answer (that would imply symmetry about x=1). In the morning, I will check out the graph!

But, for F(x), we need to flip the sign. Because F(1)=0, integrating from 1 to 3 is same as 1 to 1 F(3)  F(1) = F(1+2) =  F(12) = F(1)  F(1) FYI, here is an equivalent F(x), using surd: XCas> F := int(surd(x1,3)^8,x) "Temporary replacing surd/NTHROOT by fractional powers" → \(\frac{3}{11} \cdot \left(3\mbox{ NTHROOT }(x1)\right)^{2} \left(x1\right)^{3}\) // = \(\frac{3}{11} \cdot \left(3\mbox{ NTHROOT }(x1)\right)^{11}\)
