    integral 2

    See a different substitution which works better.

    What made you choose just x^2? How do you determine that?

    Just intuition, and a lot of experience
    Regarding your question about dividing the integral, you can do that as long you know that both function you use are integrable.

    Re:

    Is this something that comes across often? And is this one of the first things you look for when you are solving these kinds of problems?

    Re:

    Also two other questions...

    1) Do all constants hold over? No matter if they are from the original problem or from the differentiation of U?

    2) If there is a plus or minus a number in the original problem, do I put that out in front of the integral and let it hold over, or do I integrate at the same time I integrate Ul?

    My rule to choose substitution is whatever you don't like replace with a new letter. You tried that, but it didn't give you a simpler integral. I know that I have to change x^4, since a linear expresion did not work, a quadratic on the bottom I can deal with.
    If you have square roots, or radical, almost all the times works by using a new variable for the whole radical.

    1) yes,constant hold over,
    int{af(x)}=aint{f(x)}if f is integrable.
    2) the abouve rule works for all real constants.
    Make sure that the constant is a factor of the function and not a term
