When I work at this I get it as being 4[(x+2)^3/4 ] / 3 + C Is this correct?

mmmm, no, you forgot something there
Thanks PaulRS but how/why do you get x+2-2 on the numerator ?

By the way, you can check an answer to an integal by differentiating it and seeing whether the result is equal to the integrand.
