WebWork Antiderivatives #13

I noticed that a number of you have already finished most of the WebWork assignment on antiderivatives and have started on the others that are due next week. Good job! I received a question about #13 and thought the rest of you might like a hint.

In the other exercises that we’ve seen where we’re given f''(x) and asked to find f(x), we’re also given one initial condition for f'(x) and one initial condition f(x). Here, instead we’re just given two conditions that f(x) must satisfy. This means that we’re not given enough information to determine exactly what f'(x) is; we can determine it only up to a constant C. That’s okay! You can still integrate what you’ve got for f'(x)….
