Re: Mathematica not considering an assumption


Hello Leonardo,

You can try on of the following:

a = -1; Assuming[a < 0, Integrate[x^a, {x, 5, 6}]]

or

Assuming[a == -1, Integrate[x^a, {x, 5, 6}]]

and you should have the integration result you are looking for
(Log[6/5]).

I have tried both of them and got the same result (Log[6/5]).
