Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0would u = 1 + 3sqrtx and du = dx?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1This requires a u sub, what is the obvious u sub here?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You can also try \[u=\sqrt[3]{x}\] but then you probably will end up doing two substitutions, mess around with it and see what you get

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ohh okay, err so would this be on the right track? u = 1 + 3sqrtx and du = 3udu du = 3sqrtx

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm still quite confused :( @Astrophysics :(

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oops *dx=3sqrtx ? :/

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\int \frac{dx}{1+\sqrt[3]{x}}\]\[u=x~,~ du=dx\]\[\int\frac{du}{1+u^{1/3}}\]

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay!! and so the next step would be the solve this integral? :/

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you really want to sub \(u=x\) ?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wait, so we don't sub u=x? :/

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0im not sure :/ what would i make the sub be then? :/

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.6\(\large\rm u=1+\sqrt[3]{x}\) or \(\large\rm u=\sqrt[3]{x}\) I think both of these subs will work out just fine :) Err no, go with the first one. I dunno bout that other guy, he gave me a funny look.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0lol im confused:/ so u = x ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.6\[\large\rm u=1+\sqrt[3]{x},\qquad\qquad du=\frac{1}{3x^{2/3}}dx\]Do you understand how to differentiate that u? :o

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i think so :) what is next?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.6Now you have to apply a bunch of sneaky little tricks!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0just differentiate what you have and try to finish it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.6Isolate the dx, that's one of the things we're substituting stuff in for after all.\[\large\rm 3x^{2/3}du=dx\]I'm gonna use rules of exponents to write it like this:\[\large\rm 3(x^{1/3})^2du=dx\]

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that means \(\large x^\frac{1}{3} \)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.6We can sub something in for that x^(1/3) by using our equation involving u.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.6\(\large\rm u=1+x^{1/3}\quad\to\quad x^{1/3}=u1\)

zepdrix

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.6So there is our dx,\[\large\rm 3(u1)^2du=dx\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0As I have said earlier, you have sufficient knowledge to tackle this problem. Just see to it that you finish what you started so you can learn different techniques along the way.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay, haha yes a bit confusing but i think i follow.. sort of…. :P what do i do next?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.6Substitute in your pieces,\[\large\rm \color{orangered}{1+\sqrt[3]{x}=u},\qquad\qquad \color{royalblue}{dx=3(u1)^2du}\]\[\large\rm \int\limits \frac{1}{\color{orangered}{1+\sqrt[3]{x}}}\color{royalblue}{dx}=?\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.6And from there, it shouldn't be too bad :) You have to expand out the square in the numerator, and you can divide each term by u, and integrate term by term.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay, er so do i get this? \[\frac{ 3x ^{2/3} }{ 2 }  3\sqrt[3]{x} + 3\log(\sqrt[3]{x}+1) + C \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.6What did you get after integrating in u? I feel like you're missing a 2 in the middle maybe.\[\large\rm =3\left(\frac{1}{2}u^22u+\ln u\right)\]Something similar or no? :o We can substitute back in a sec, I'm just curious if yours looks the same up to this point.

zepdrix

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.6When you get to this point, you normally have two options: ~find new boundary values for your integral, in terms of u, instead of x. ~or undo your substitution and use the original values for integrating. I have a feeling... that with this monster it's going to be easier to get new boundaries for u as opposed to subbing back in those weird x's.\[\large\rm x=0 \qquad\to\qquad u=?\]\[\large\rm x=1\qquad\to\qquad u=?\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ohh okay :) u=1 , u=2 ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.6\[\large\rm =3\left(\frac{1}{2}u^22u+\ln u\right)_1^2\]Mmm sounds good!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so now i plug in? and i get 3((24+ln(2) (1/22+ln(1)) ?

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so 3(2+ln(2)  1/2 +2 ln(1) = 3(1/2 +ln(1) ?

zepdrix

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.6Your ln(2) disappeared, uh oh

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh oops so it should be 3(1/2 + ln(2) + ln(1)) ?

zepdrix
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.6You could go a tad further with it if you wanted, ln(1)=0. \[\large\rm =ln(2^3)\frac{3}{2}\] but whatever, yay good job \c:/

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ooh okay, so would that be my solution?
