That is some extra typing but perhaps it is not too much.
int {{2 x^2} over {x^{1/3}} + {3 x} over {x ^{1/2}} -1 over {x^{1/3}} dx}

Therefore you only need to enter a space in front of the x to make clear that 2x not is a single item. Doing so you will also get a little distance between the 2 and the x - due to Math trying to obey conventions. The distance will be smaller, however, than it would be following the suggestion with the pair of curly brackets.
Try
- Code: Select all Expand viewCollapse view
int {{2 x^2} over {x^{1/3}} + {3 x} over {x ^{1/2}} -1 over {x^{1/3}} dx}
It does as I would expect and like it.
If you like it otherwise, you may reduce the 'Spacing' using the Format menu of Math. I don't know in what way this would afflict different situations. Therefore I would dissuade from "stubborn" settings.
(And, please: Next time also post the MathML code if you again attach a formula as an image. No contributor is fond of wasting time with a reconstruction.)
