1. ## Integration substitution.

Use substitution to find each indefinite integral.
∫ 3 du / (square root 3u - 5)
I did
U = 3u -5
dU = 3 du
∫ U^(-1/2)dU =
U^(1/2)/(1/2) + C =
2U^(1/2) + C =
2(3u - 5)^(1/2) + C =
2sqrt(3u - 5)
Is that right?

2. Thats the right answer. A good trick to double check your primitives is to calculate the derivative of your answer and see if it gives you what you had in the integral.

+ C!!!
