    Linear Rationalizing Substitution problem for Integration

    So I'm working with the following problem -

    After setting u = 2x + 1, and (1/2)du = dx, and x = ((u-1)/2) I end up with
    (1/2)integral{((u-1)\2)3 (u)(1/3)du}

    After doing that I get lost. What would be the next step? Do I need to make another substitution?
    (I can't do (1/4)((u-1)/2)4 can I?...)

    Hint :

    (A-B)^3=A^3-3A^2B+3AB^2-B^3

    The thing is, I have ((u-1)/2)3. So I can't re-write is as (u-1)3 x (1/2)3... can I?

    I think that the MHF community is willing to help me, and has helped me in the past. In all honesty, directing me to some other site that in no way relates to my problem is not helping me.

    Well, thank you, I guess.

    Anyway, how do I integrate ((u-1)/2)3?

    expand the expression( (u-1)/2)^3 then multiply by u^1/3 and integrate the polynomial you will obtain.
    It is a little bit messy but if you are lucky and you will work slowly you will not do mistakes.
    Give it a try.

    It turns out that that was one of the methods I tried, but I just got lost in the arithmetic. Thanks a lot!
