The equation from my book: (25.4)

integral u^n du = u^(n+1) / (n + 1) + c

says in the book its a confusing equation to boot. Can I get an explanation on this quiz question?

Integrate:

x / sqrt(6x^2 + 1)

steps, per answer key:

u = 6x^2 + 1

du = 12x dx

Ok, so u is the denominator, and du is the derivative of the denominator... do I have the wrong equation for this question?? I'll stop there, but the answer key proceeds.

1/12 (int symbol) u ^ -1/2

1/12 2u^1/2

1/6 u^1/2

1/6 (6x^2 + 1)^1/2 + C

Thanks.
