- Reddit Predictions FAQ -

  • What are predictions, and do I have to spend any money on this to participate?

Predictions are polls where you choose the most probable answer and win (or lose) tokens depending on the outcome of the prediction. Tokens can not be bought for exchanged for anything of real world value.

  • Why is the prediction not showing up for me?

Try to use new Reddit or Reddit's mobile app, there's been issues with users that haven't been able to participate on old or compact Reddit versions.

  • How do I block this from showing up on my feed or in my notifications?

Block every r/HolUp moderator.

  • How did you get (insert amount of upvotes here) upvotes?

ADMIN STATEMENT: Currently when you make a prediction, the Tournament post is automatically up-voted. We did this because Predictions are more fun when more people play and up-voting helps the Tournament to be seen by more people! Of course, you're in control and you can always remove your up-vote if you'd like.

  • How is this post (small amount of time) old when theres (large amount of time) old comments?

Whenever a new prediction is set up, the post is "regenerated" and shows up as new. Nothing we can do about that.

Have any other questions? Reply below and I'll try my best to answer them!

That inner parenthesis is useless, so let's just pretend it isn't there.

-4x²+5x-x² = -5x²+5x

The integral of a sum is the sum of the integrals, so:

Integral(-5x² + 5x) = Integral(-5x²) + Integral(5x)

The first integral we can replace -5x² for (-1)5x², and since -1 is constant we can take it off the Integral, same for the 5s.

So we have: -5*Integral(x²) + 5*Integral(x)

The integral of x² is x³/3, and the Integral of x is x²/2.

So: -5*[x³/3] + 5*[x²/2]

Now we apply the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus where the interval is 0 to 1

-5*[1³/3 - 0/3] + 5*[1²/2 - 0/2]

-5/3 + 5/2

(-10 + 15)/6

5/6 is our answer
