    Antidifferentiation

    Hey Guys,

    I am having a little bit of difficulty antidifferentiating this function:
    f (x) = (sqrt(x)-4) / (sqrt(x)-2)
    Can anyone please help???

    Thanks...

    use U substitution. Here's a hint, let u = (sqrt(x)-2) then solve sqrt(x) in term of u and you get u +2 = sqrt(x) plug that into the equation and take antiderivative.
