# Math Help - Another integral:

1. ## Another integral:

$\int \frac{t^{2.7}}{4+t^3}{dt}$

I've tried using substitution or integration by parts, but I can't figure out how to pick what U equals, and I don't really know where to start.

2. just do long division (it's a little hard to wrute this in latex)

$\frac{{t^{27} }}
{{4 + t^3 }} = t^{24} - 4t^{21} + 16t^{18} \cdots$

That one is easy. For this one, though, the exponent is 2.7, not 27.

in that case there is no simple integral, wolfram integrator gives an answer which includes the hypergeometric function.
