I know that

But I don't know which part to divide first. Is there any way to know what part to divide first or is this somehow a trick question?

Thanks so much!!!

Sorry I meant to write this...

[ ]

Do the parenthesis make a difference?

So when I combine the stuff inside the parenthesis, I put the 3/2 as an exponent?

ln[( +1)(x-1)/(x+1)]^(3/2)

Does that seem right?

Thanks for your help! :) - Oct 7th 2007, 02:14 PMJhevon

I see what I did wrong. Thank you!:)

I got...

ln(( +1)/( -1))^(3/2)

Does this seem right?
