Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(3x + 9)^1/2 you need a 3, so multiply it by 3/3 and draw out the (1/3)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0As a u substitution you would just say \[u = 3x+9 \implies du = 3dx \implies dx = \frac{du}{3}\] Then \[\int \sqrt{3x+9}\ dx = \int \sqrt{u} * \frac{1}{3}du\] Then take the anti derivative of the u version and when you are done substitute back in 3x+9 for u.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok but why will I use substitution. What about this problem tells me to substitute?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that "3x+9" under the radical is the clue. in order to derive down to this state, we had to use the chain rule. And that part is now missing from this equation; we essentially need to get it back.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Dx(3x+9) = 3 ..... so we need to account for a "missing" 3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if u = 3x+9 ; then du = 3 dx and dx= du/3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0When you are finding antiderivatives of a function composed of another function \[\int f(g(x)) dx\] You will want to use a u substitution. In this case \[f(a) = \sqrt{a}\] and \[g(x) = 3x+9\] And you're finding the antiderivative f(g(x) dx \[f(g(x)) = f(3x+9) = \sqrt{3x+9}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Not quite. What did you get for the anti derivative of \[\frac{1}{3}\sqrt{u}\ du?\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Actually I see where your mistake was. You need to bring down the reciprocal of the exponent _after_ you add 1 to it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Actually, it looks like you did that. I think it was just a book keeping mistake.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You're missing a factor of 2 on the front. And your exponent is flipped the wrong way. It should be: \[\int \frac{\sqrt{u}}{3}du \] \[= \int \frac{u^{1/2}}{3} du\] \[= \frac{2}{3}*\frac{u^{3/2}}{3} + C\] \[= \frac{2(3x+9)^{3/2}}{9} + C\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I see what you are doing but it just isn't clicking for me, but I am working on it. The 2/3 * u^3/2/3 The 2/3 is just the recp of 3/2???

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes. Recall that the antiderivative of \[x^a \implies \frac{1}{a+1}*x^{a+1} + C\] We can confirm this is true, by taking the derivative of the right side and verifying that we get the left side.
