    \[\int\limits_{0}^{1}{x^3 \over \sqrt{x^4+9}}dx\]Is this the correct equation?

    yes, that is the one.

    u-substitute for x^4 + 9

    let u be x^4+9?

    but how do you know which one to put as" u"?

    u = x^4 + 9 du = 4x^3 dx du / 4x^3 = dx\[\int\limits\limits_{0}^{1}{x^3 \over \sqrt{u}}{du \over 4x^3}\]\[\int\limits\limits_{0}^{1}{du \over 4\sqrt{u}}\]Can you finish it? I think you are actually supposed to re-evaluate the limits but I don't remember how to do that. It is not necessary if you replace u with what you substituted it for before you apply the limits

    to re-evaluate the limits plug in 0 and 1 into u=x^4 + 9

    then, what do I need to do after that?

    I don't know why you did that.. you need to integrate the last equation I gave you that has u in it

    \[\int\limits\limits\limits_{9}^{10}{du \over 4\sqrt{u}}\]

    After you do u-substitution to re-evaluate the limits see Twe's post

    when i plug in 0 i get 9 and whne i plug in 1 , I get 10

    how did u get u^-1/2?

    re-evaluating the limits is the short method. If you don't do that you can plug what you substituted u for then use the old limits after integration. You should get the same answer
