    Indefinite integral

    Having no luck with this question. Any help would be great.

    Give an expression for the indefinite integral


    Integral of 1/(sqrt x) (1+sqrt x)^2 dx (x>0)

    do a substitution. u = 1 + \sqrt{x}

    you will end up with 2 \int u^{-2}~du

    which i am sure you can handle

    I would also use the substitution method, but I did this to make it look different (not really sure if it helps):
