[AT 48:37] If you do the integral of x^3 - the integral of x separately then you obtain a result of:

(x^4/4 - x^2/2) + c

Professor Jishi, through u-substitution, obtained a result of:

(x^2-1)^2/4 + c

Clearly we can see if we sub in a value of x=1 then we get completely different results; first one being -1/4 + C and second one giving 0 + C. Did Professor Jishi make a mistake? I keep looking at his u-substitution and it seems he does everything logically step-by-step.
