# Math Help - integrate the function....

1. ## integrate the function....

i am supposed to integrate this function, but i have no idea, i completed the square hoping that would help but still no good, any thoughts? well here is an upload of the problem...sorry for the messy handwriting. thanks in advance.

2. $\frac{1}{x^2-12x+32} = \frac{1}{(x-4)(x-8)}
$

use partial fractions

3. 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)

4. ok im gonna take a look at the partial fraction, only because i havent learned that method before..thanks again!
