## anonymous 5 years ago Find the indefinite integral. (e^x - e^-x) / (e^x - e^-x)^5/2

1. anonymous

beckm, when you integrate this, you're going to end up with something that uses the hypergeometric function. Have you heard of that?

2. anonymous

no i have not

3. anonymous

we have been using integration using substitution,

4. anonymous

What level mathematics are you taking?

5. anonymous

6. anonymous

Yeah, you could consider setting $e^x=\cosh u$to end up with an integral form of$\frac{1}{2^{3/2}}cosech^{3/2} u$

7. anonymous

But again, the hypergeometric function will be coming...

8. anonymous

yeah i dont think we are learning that b/c our school yr is over in two weeks, and we are only learning integration using substituiton

9. anonymous

Yeah...sorry :(
