Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If I'm not mistaken, you can use trigonometric substitution : you have the following: \[\int\limits_{}^{}1/\sqrt{(x^2 + 4)^5}dx\] we have the form : \[\sqrt{x^2 + a^2}\] so you can let x be: \[x = a \tan \theta\] Then substitute x in : \[\sqrt{(x^2 + 4)^5}\] After that find dx when x = atan(theta) Last , susbstitute everything in the integral and then integrate. Give it a try now ^_^

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0use partial fractions for this one so you'll have the following form:\[= (A/x^2 + 1) + (B/x+7)\] try it out ^_^

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and after that you plug in the value right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you'll have to multiply by the denominators to get the following state: \[8x^2 +6 = A(x+7) + B(x^2+1)\] then try out small numbers for x, then plug it in ^_^

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\int\limits_{0}^{1} \ln(x) / x ^{1/2} dx \] to approximate this integral using the trapezoid rule. if you can help me with this one also, i am sorry :(
