Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\int\limits_{?}^{?}x^2*\sqrt{3x^2+4}dx\] I started with \[u = 2x^3 +4\] \[du = 6x^2dx \rightarrow x^2dx=1/6 * du\] \[\int\limits_{?}^{?}\sqrt{u}*du/6 = 1/9 * \sqrt{u^3} = 1/9 * \sqrt{(2x^3+4)^3}\] But Wolfram got something else entirely but I fail to see my mistake.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Sry I got the first line wrong. This is the integral I am supposed so solve. \[\int\limits_{?}^{?}x^2*\sqrt{2x^3+4} dx\]
