    Let \[I_n=\huge\int \frac{x^n}{\sqrt{x^2+a}}\] \[n \in N,a>0,and \space I_n=(a,\infty)\]

    actually it says show that \[I_n=\frac{1}{n}x^{n-1}\sqrt{x^2+a}-\frac{n-1}{n}aI_{n-2}\]

    \[I_0=\ln(x+\sqrt{x^2+a})-\ln\sqrt{a}+c,I_1=\frac{1}{2}\sqrt{x^2+a}+c\]

    yes\[ f=x^n,f'=nx^{n-1}\] \[g'=\frac{1}{\sqrt{x^2+a}}.g=I_0\] \[I_n=x^n(I_0)-\int I_0nx^{n-1}\]

    \[I_n=x^n\ln(x+\sqrt{x^2+a})-n\int x^{n-1}\ln(x+\sqrt{x^2+a})\]

    using parts twice \[\int(x^{n-1})\ln(x+\sqrt{x^2+a)}\] \[f=x^n-1,f'=(n-1)x^{n-2}\] \[g'=\ln(x+\sqrt{x^2+a)}\] not sure wat to use for g

    let me try lil bit different, \(I_n=\huge\int \frac{x^n}{\sqrt{x^2+a}}dx=\huge\int \frac{x.x^{n-1}}{\sqrt{x^2+a}}dx\) now let f(x) = x^{n-1} , g'(x) =x/(...)
