    not really, it should just be a u-sub\[u=t+4\]\[du=dt\]

    well if you use that sub what does this integral become\[\int_{0}^{x}\sqrt{t+4}dt\]?write it in terms of u

    yeah im stuck at 1/2(t+4)^(-1/2)

    we are integrating here, that's the opposite

    that response was to whoever said use the power rule... they deleted their comment

    they just didn't quite understand your question I think \[\int_{0}^{x}\sqrt{t+4}dt\]\[u=t+4\implies du=dt\]now rewrite the integral in terms of u

    \[\int_{0}^{x}\sqrt{t+4}dt\]\[u=t+4\implies du=dt\]so our integral (indefinite for the time being) is now\[\int\sqrt udu\]which you should be able to integrate

    notice we put the \(u\) where the \(t+4\) was and the \(du\)0 where the \(dt\) was. that's the essence of how a u-sub in integration works

    not quite... would it help you if I reminded you that we can rewrite this as\[\int u^{1/2}du\]??

    then you can use the power rule for \(integration\) (basically the opposite of the power rule for differentiation)

    which is\[\int x^ndx=\frac{x^{n+1}}{n+1}\]

    can you solve the problem so i can see how its done? ill understand it better that way.

    I will try to guide you a little farther than I normally would, but I hope you don't ask the exact same question again later!

    \[\int_{0}^{x}\sqrt{t+4}dt\]\[u=t+4\implies du=dt\]so our integral (indefinite for the time being) is now\[\int\sqrt udu=\int u^{1/2}du=\frac23u^{3/2}\]now put it back in terms of t and put in the evaluation\[\int_{0}^{x}\sqrt{t+4}dt=\frac23(t+4)^{3/2}|_{0}^{x}\]evaluate this \(carefully\). Now do you see where the last term comes from?

    \[\int_{0}^{x}\sqrt{t+4}dt\]\[u=t+4\implies du=dt\]so our integral (indefinite for the time being) is now\[\int\sqrt udu=\int u^{1/2}du=\frac23u^{3/2}\]now put it back in terms of t and put in the evaluation\[\int_{0}^{x}\sqrt{t+4}dt=\frac23(t+4)^{3/2}|_{0}^{x}=\frac23(x+4)-\frac23(0+4)^{3/2}\]\[=\frac23(x+4)-\frac23(4)^{3/2}=\frac23(x+4)-\frac23(8)=\frac23(x+4)-\frac{16}3\]please don't ask me to give the final answer again, it's very buch not my style... I hope this makes sense to you after looking it over. Good luck!

    *typo above (I dropped the ^3/2 in the last few steps)\[\int_{0}^{x}\sqrt{t+4}dt\]\[u=t+4\implies du=dt\]so our integral (indefinite for the time being) is now\[\int\sqrt udu=\int u^{1/2}du=\frac23u^{3/2}\]now put it back in terms of t and put in the evaluation\[\int_{0}^{x}\sqrt{t+4}dt=\frac23(t+4)^{3/2}|_{0}^{x}=\frac23(x+4)^{3/2}-\frac23(0+4)^{3/2}\]\[=\frac23(x+4)^{3/2}-\frac23(4)^{3/2}=\frac23(x+4)^{3/2}-\frac23(8)=\frac23(x+4)^{3/2}-\frac{16}3\]
