# Math Help - plz help me solve the indefinite integral

1. ## plz help me solve the indefinite integral

Hi guys,

I'm having some trouble solving the indefinite integral in the attachment. It’s difficult for me. Would you please help me solve it? Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

2. Here is what the Integrator give:

$x-x_{2}F_{1}(\frac{1}{n},1;1+\frac{1}{n};\frac{-x^{n}}{a})$

If there were limits of integration, then we may be able to do some thing slick ala Kriz and get a solution, but an indefinite is a booger. Maybe someone else as an idea.

Thanks a lot for your help.
I did an integration by parts with u=x and dv=\frac{nx^{n-1}}{a+x^n}
what should i do next? Thank you.
