The Second Fundamental Theorem of Calculus states:

d/dx (∫{a,x} f(t) dt) = f(x)

Using the chain rule:

d/dx (∫{a,u(x)} f(t) dt) = (f(x))(du/dx)

So if F(x) = ∫{1,x^2} √(1+t^3) dt, then

F'(x) = (√(1+t^3))(2x) = 2x√(1+t^3)

Use chain rule

F'(x) = dF(x)/dx = (dF(x)/dx^{2})(dx^{2}/dx) = 2x (dF(x)/dx^{2}) (1)

When you differentiate the integral with variable upper limit it gives you the function being integrated.

Thus (because the lower limit doesn't play any role being a constant number)

dF(x)/dx^{2} = √(1 + t^{3}) where t = x^{2 (2)}

If you combine (1) and (2) you will obtain your answer:

F'(x) = 2x√(1+x^{6})

Comment. There is no need to integrate and then differentiate by x.

If you want to type x^{6} instead of x^6 simply type x6, highlight only 6 and click on the icon (x^{2}).

Good luck!

F( X) = ∫ √( 1 + t^3) dt = √ (1 + t^3 ) du/dx = 2X √(1+ X^6) - ( 1- 1) = 2X √( 1 + X^6)

Note: Integration and differentiation are inverse of each other.
