I am having trouble with the following question:

Complete the square in the quadratic expression q which is given by

q=16x^2+32x+17

and use this to evaluate the following integral

int(1/sqrt(16x^2+32x+17)dx)

(the integral of one over the square root of (16x^2+32x+17))

This is just way over my head...

I tried to solve 16x^2+32x+17=0, and I got

x1= -1 + 0.25*i

x2= -1 - 0.25*i

which wasn't very helpful.

q can also be rewritten as (x + 1)(x + 1) + 0.0625, but again, I don't know where to go from here...

And help would be greatly appreciated
