    integration technique

    I encounter 2 problems when I explain integration technique to my student.
    Could someone help me?
    Thx alot.

    \int{x^5*[(4-3x^4)]^1/3}=
    \int{\frac{e^x}{2+e^(2x)}}=
    all with respect to x.

    \int{\frac{e^x}{2 + e^{2x}}\,dx} = \int{\frac{e^x\,dx}{2 + (e^x)^2}}.

    Let u = e^x so that du= e^x\,dx and the integral becomes

    \int{\frac{du}{2 + u^2}}.


    Now you have to use a trigonometric substitution. Let u = \sqrt{2}\tan{\theta} so that \theta = \arctan{\left(\frac{\sqrt{2}u}{2}\right)} and du = \sqrt{2}\sec^2{\theta}\,d\theta. The integral becomes

    \int{\frac{\sqrt{2}\sec^2{\theta}\,d\theta}{2 + (\sqrt{2}\tan{\theta})^2}}

     = \int{\frac{\sqrt{2}\sec^2{\theta}\,d\theta}{2 + 2\tan^2{\theta}}}

     = \int{\frac{\sqrt{2}\sec^2{\theta}\,d\theta}{2(1 + \tan^2{\theta})}}

     = \int{\frac{\sqrt{2}\sec^2{\theta}\,d\theta}{2\sec^  2{\theta}}}

     = \frac{\sqrt{2}}{2}\int{1\,d\theta}

    = \frac{\sqrt{2}}{2}\theta + C

     = \frac{\sqrt{2}}{2}\arctan{\left(\frac{\sqrt{2}u}{2  }\right)} + C

     = \frac{\sqrt{2}}{2}\arctan{\left(\frac{\sqrt{2}e^x}  {2}\right)} + C.

    I would use integration by parts on the first integral...

    \int{x^5(4 - 3x^4)^{\frac{1}{3}}\,dx} = -\frac{1}{12}\int{x^2\left(-12x^3\right)(4 - 3x^4)^{\frac{1}{3}}\,dx}.


    Now let u = x^2 so that du = 2x

    Let dv = -12x^3(4 - 3x^4)^{\frac{1}{3}} so that v = \frac{3}{4}(4 - 3x^4)^{\frac{4}{3}} and the integral becomes


    -\frac{1}{12}\int{x^2\left(-12x^3\right)(4 - 3x^4)^{\frac{1}{3}}\,dx} = -\frac{1}{12}\left[\frac{3}{4}x^2(4 - 3x^4)^{\frac{4}{3}} - \int{\frac{3}{2}x(4 - 3x^4)^{\frac{4}{3}}\,dx}\right]

     = -\frac{1}{16}x^2(4 - 3x^4)^{\frac{4}{3}} + \frac{1}{8}\int{x(4 - 3x^4)^{\frac{4}{3}}\,dx}.


    Now apply integration by parts again.
