Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I would set u=x^3. so du=3x^2dx so x^2dx=1/3 * du. So you can rewrite it as 1/3 * (u5)^0.5du and integrate that more easily. Of course you might wanna pull the 1/3 out and just integrate (u5)^0.5 du and than just put it back in the end when you resubstitute.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Remember what I said to you. Look outside the square root, you have x^2. There must be a c such that: cx^2 = du/dx for u = x^3  5. That would imply that 3x^2 = cx^2 > c = 3, so multiply by 3/3.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\frac{3}{3} \int\limits_{a}^{b}x^2\sqrt{x^3  5}dx = \frac{1}{3} \int\limits_{u}^{v}\sqrt{u}du = \frac{1}{3} \int\limits_{u}^{v}u^{\frac{1}{2}}du\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yeah, du = 3x^2. That's what I said, I belive.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Remember that you have to divide by n+1, so you divide by 3/2. That's the same as multiplying by 2/3, so you have (1/3)(2/3) = 2/9. The rest is ok, well done :)
