First let . The let

Damn.. I was thinking there would be a more obvious substitution I could use.. I would not think to use these in a calculus exam :O Thanks for the suggestions - I'll be trying them out now and see what works best for me
In my opinion the best way is the simple substution so that the integral becomes... (1) ... that can be solved by parts in some steps... Kind regards
