I am having trouble figuring out how to solve integrals that are rational, and also when square roots are involved. Please bear with me, I'm in an online class and I've discovered that I'm not very good at teaching myself
Evaluate the integral:
(s(s+1)^2 / sqrt(s))ds
what is the rule of thumb in approaching a situation like this? I've been trying to think backwards to see what would have to exist to end up with this as a derivative, but every time the product rule leaves me with a lot more than what is here.
