    My work: u = 1+y du/dy = 1 du=dy?

    will u now be y^2+y^4?

    but i got 1 for u sub anyways. so i just keep y^2 ?

    I see my mistake. Let me reevaluate the problem and I will come at you with a response.

    Yah you wouldn't use a `U sub` for this one I'm afraid swin. You would just expand out the brackets and integrate each term individually.

    \[y^2(1+y)^2dy=y^2(y^2+2y+1)dy=(y^4+2y^3+y^2)dy\]

    is there an indication to do so?

    No, you are simplifying your y terms and happen to end up with \[ (y^4+2y^3+y^2)dy \]Integrate each term dy

    oh ok. that makes sense. usually i don't have to expand a problem or distribute so i didn't know if using u sub for 1+y is correct

    Had you done some usub, you would had \[(y^2u)du\] and would not really have gotten anywhere as far as the integral goes. Be sure to have + C to your integral term since the integral is undefined.

    To apply a `u sub`, you want to look for a suitable `u` and `u'` somewhere in your problem. \(2y(1+y^2)\) See how if \(u=1+y^2\) then \(u'=2y\) ? In the problem you were given, letting your inner function be `u` did NOT result in the outer function being u'. So that is usually your indicator.

    OHH ok! I'll make sure to tell my teacher to clarify this to the class. I did not know that! hahaha

    oh but in the case you're presenting it's (1+y^2) not (1+y)^2

    u sub can be used when the exponent is outside right?
