Can someone help me with the integration of x/sqrt(1+x^5) ?

I just do not get it.

Doesn't look like it can be done by elementary means.

Thanks for the try. What I actually need to check is if this improper intergral is convergent. As far as I know you have to solve the integral to do this. Or is there another way?
