Crazy Integral Question. Please Help!!!
The initial question I have is to evaluate the following indefinite integral:
(from: calculus, early transcendentals textbook by James Stewart 6th custom edition for MA110. Question from: sec. 7.4 question #37)
The question seems to require some completing the square of the denominator, substituition, and partial fraction integration. I thought I was on the right track although I have been trying for about 5 hours now and I can't get the same answer as the book which is really frustrating.
The answer according to my book is:
If anyone has some time then I would really appreciate the help.
NOTE: The step I got to and think I am right is:
This is just after i finished making the integral into partial fractions. Also if you were wondering what I used as my substitution.
So ya I got a little stuck here. I have tried finding the integrals seperately although I can't seem to get it to work and it is hard to see where my errors are because the integrals are all seperate and I can't know if even 1 is right. My work so far may also be wrong too though (Doh)
Thanks in advance for your help,
