How do I integrate:
∫ 2x/(x-4) dx
and
∫ (x+3)sqrt(x-2) dx
Thanks for help!
I would first tweek the integral before I apply integration by parts:
let . Thus,
Now, the integral becomes
Now integration by parts will be a piece of cake from here.
Let and
Why don't you take it from here and find and .

Here's something that may be helpful in the future:
To determine what should be, you can use the anagram LIPET. Go down the list (in this particular order) and see what you have in the integral [i.e. if you don't have logs, do you have inverse trig? etc]:
Logarithms (Natural) --------------Highest priority
Inverse Trigonometric Functions
Polynomial Expressions
Exponential Functions
Trigonometric Functions -----------Lowest Priority
