Standard antiderivative types - powers
Watch for the following functions:
Convert them to negative powers
and you can see that they are type 1 functions.
In general, this can be used with any function of the type:
This is the 'change of variable' method which uses the chain rule
backwards to antidifferentiate functions of the type:
where the solution is found by antidifferentiating f(u) with respect to u.
