    Angry Integration Problem =(

    i need a lot of help intergrating...it's really hard...The way we're supposed to do it is by parts or trig substitution.

    dx
    ([x^2]-4x)^(3/2)

    any help would be awesome, thanks!

    Is it meant to look like this \int (x^2 - 4x)^{\frac{3}{2}}.dx

    ahh no soryr, the dx is supposed to be on top, either dx on top or a -(3/2) as the exponent

    Put x=\frac{4}{1-{{u}^{2}}}, and show us where does that get you.
