1. ## Strange antiderivative problem... how to proceed?

If the function f is defined by sqrt(x^3+2) and if g is an antiderivative of f such that g(3)=5, then what is g?

I'm not sure what method to integrate f. Trig sub? Integ by parts? Any help is appreciated.

2. Hi

Here is what Wolfram says about your antiderivative !

It is not computable ...

3. Lol that's hilarous!

### if function f defined by f(x)=sqrt x^3
