    i just searched what u substitution means, and i noticed that i cant make use of formulas.. in this case may i use the S du/u = ln u +c? (?)

    when you derive that you get a simple function you could use.

    \[ u = 2x^2 +1\] \[du = 4xdx\]

    divide the du function across by 2:

    \[\frac{ du }{ 2 } = 2xdx\]

    Then your new integral would be:

    \[\frac{ 1 }{ 2 }\int\limits_{?}^{?} \frac{ 1 }{ u } du\]

    if you integrate that you get: \[\frac{ 1 }{ 2 }\left[ logu \right] + C\]

    i divided du by 2 so it can look like something i already had. I could have done it withoug dividing by 2 but i like to simplify things.
