    let y+1 = some constant, say k \[\int_{0}^{2}\frac{1}{(x+k)^3}dx\] \[\int_{0}^{2}(x+k)^{-3}dx\]

    @amistre64 solution \[-\frac{ (x + k) ^ 2 }{ 2} + C\]

    i forgot the (-) on the 2 up there

    that would be the indefinite integral yes; lets apply the limits of 0 to 2, recall that \[\int_{a}^{b}f(x)~dx=F(b)-F(a)\]

    \[\left(-\frac{ (2 + k) ^{-2} }{ 2}\right)-\left(-\frac{ (0 + k) ^{-2} }{ 2} \right)\] \[-\frac{ (2 + k) ^{-2} }{ 2}+\frac{ ( k) ^{-2} }{ 2} \] \[\frac12(k^{-2}-(2 + k) ^{-2})~:~k=y+1 \] \[\frac12((y+1)^{-2}-(y+3) ^{-2})\] integrate that from 0 to 1

    from your 2nd step, am i not to replace k = 2? and k = 0? @amistre64

    no, k is just some constant with respect to x your integrating "x" from 0 to 2 .... not "k" from 0 to 2

    why not with respect to "y"?

    because your order of integration is dxdy dx first, then dy

    \[\int_{0}^{1}\left(\int_{0}^{2}\frac{1}{(x+y+1)^3}~dx\right)dy\] the inside stuff is dx .. anything that is not xed is constant, therefore y+1 = k \[...\left(\int_{0}^{2}\frac{1}{(x+k)^3}~dx\right)...\]
