does the integral x/(5-x)^(1/2) dx that goes from 1 to 5 converge and if so what is the value and how do you find it?

    \[\Large \int_1^5 \frac{x}{\sqrt{5-x}}dx?\]

    yes that's what it looks like...so does it converge? and how do you show that it converges?

    well you do this: \[\Large \lim_{t \rightarrow 5} \int_1^t \frac{x}{\sqrt{5-x}}dx\]

    \[\large \sqrt 5 \sin \theta = \sqrt x\] \[\large \sqrt 5 \cos \theta = \sqrt{5-x}\] \[\large 5 \sin^2 \theta = x\] \[\large 10 \sin \theta \cos \theta d\theta = dx\] \[\large \int \frac{x}{\sqrt{5-x}}dx = \int \frac{5\sin^2 \theta \times 10 \sin \theta \cos \theta d\theta}{\sqrt 5 \cos \theta}\] \[\large \frac{50}{\sqrt 5} \int \sin^3 \theta d\theta\] i believe that is solveable?
