use partial fractions
There are 2 ways to approach this
1) 1/[x^2 - 12x +32] =1/[ (x-8)(x-4)]
and Use partial fraction decomp
2) x^2 - 12x +32 = (x-6)^2 - 4
use trig sub
Let x -6 = 2sec(t)
ok im gonna take a look at the partial fraction, only because i havent learned that method before..thanks again!
