# Math Help - integration Q

1. ## integration Q

ind the area under the curve Y = 1 / 1 + (X)^0.5 between x = 0 and x = 1 using the substitution u = 1 + (x)^0.5

2. $\int_0^1 {\frac{1}
{{1 + \sqrt x }}\,dx} .$

By setting $u = 1 + \sqrt x \implies du = \frac{1}
{{2\sqrt x }}\,dx\,\therefore \,du = \frac{1}
{{2(u - 1)}}\,dx,$
hence

$2\int_1^2 {\frac{{u - 1}}
{u}\,du} ,$
now this is routine.
