Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Use integration by parts. Bring sqrt(3x1) on the top. So you will have something that looks like this.: \[x(3x1)^{1/2}\] Now, use integration by parts. u=x, dv=(3x1)^(1/2) Then use \[u.v\int\limits_{}^{}v.du\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0alaikum salam ... and I'm about to show how:\[\int\limits\limits_{} \frac{x}{\sqrt{3x1}}dx \rightarrow u=3x1, \frac{du}{3}=dx, x=\frac{u+1}{3}\] \[\frac{1}{3}\int\limits_{}\frac{x}{\sqrt{u}}du\] you have to back substitute x in terms of u \[\frac{1}{3}\int\limits_{}\frac{\frac{u+1}{3}}{\sqrt{u}}du \rightarrow \frac{1}{9}\int\limits_{}\frac{u+1}{\sqrt{u}}du\] \[\rightarrow \frac{1}{9}\int\limits_{}\frac{u}{\sqrt{u}}du+\frac{1}{9}\int\limits_{}\frac{1}{\sqrt{u}}du\] \[\rightarrow \frac {1}{9}\int\limits_{}\sqrt{u}du+\frac{1}{9}\int\limits_{}\frac{1}{\sqrt{u}}du\] \[\rightarrow \frac {2}{27}u^{\frac{3}{2}}+\frac{2}{9}u^{\frac{1}{2}}+C\] now substitute u back in, u=3x1 \[\frac {2}{27}(3x1)^{\frac{3}{2}}+\frac{2}{9}(3x1)^{\frac{1}{2}}+C\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Integration by part does work but you will have to use u substitution on the second integral
