i was asked to evaluate:

using a substitution method involving hyperbolic or trig function.

ive seen some people use x = 2 sec(theta) .ive tried to integrate it but got stuck mid way.

pls help

Hello,

So seems to be a pretty good idea, plus, its antiderivative is known (sinh(x)) - Apr 13th 2008, 06:28 AMmr fantastic

The derivative for x is sinh(t), not -sinh(t) ;)
