So what is the integral from 0 to 6 of x^25 dx?
Working from dusty old math, that's 1/3rd x^3  5/2x^2, at the edges.
For 0, that's 0.
For 6, that's 1/3 * 36 * 6  5/2 * 36
That simplifies to 36 * 2  5 * 18
Or 72  90
Or 18
How can the answer be 18? It's been too long; what am I doing wrong on the integral?

Or instead of trying to do the math you could just brush up on your Hitchhiker's Guide!

What's the derivative of 5/2x^2? (Hint: It isn't 5.)

If there were more random higher math questions in Game!, I wouldn't have been bored away by now.
