The "why" is beyond me, but... int[x_] = Integrate[(2.3*x^2)/ (-8 + x^3)^0.37, x] 1.2169312169312168* (-8. + x^3)^(63/100) Limit[int[6.5] - int[t], t -> 2, Direction -> -1] 41.07556812535198 Bobby Ray <rayfg at optonline.net> wrote in message news:<c48r0n$lq6$1 at smc.vnet.net>... > Any idea why version 4.2 quickly does the following problem but 5.0.1 > seems not to be able to ( I aborted after about a minute)? > > Limit[Integrate[2.3x^2/((x^3-8)^.37),{x,t,6.5}],t->2,Direction->-1] > > I just noticed this when I was trying some class notes from last > semester in version 5.0.1.
