(My work is attached and #45 is the problem I am referring to)

Any input would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance!

P.S.

Wolfram Alpha's work: http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=integral+1%2Fsqrt(x^2+%2B+16)

P.P.S.

My textbook's answer: ln(sqrt(x^2 + 16) + x) + C ----> which basically is missing the 1/4 multiplication, isn't it?
