I'm back, how do I integrate (x^2+2)^2? I need to integrate this to find the volume of a solid. Cheers

thanks very much. Out of curiosity, is that the normal method of solving a question like that? Expand it then integrate as usual? What happens with higher powers? Is there a rule I should know about?
