    integration help

    Need help with these examples:

    a)  \int \frac{\sqrt{1+2lnx}}{x}\, dx

    b)  \int x^5\sqrt{1-x^3}\, dx

\int x^5\sqrt{1-x^3}\, dx<br />

    Let u=1-x^3 \Rightarrow \frac{du}{dx}-3x^2

    \int x^5 \sqrt{u} \frac{du}{-3x^2} \Rightarrow -\frac{1}{3}\int x^3 \sqrt{u} ~du

    \Rightarrow -\frac{1}{3} \int (1-u)\sqrt{u}~du

    =-\frac{1}{3} \int \sqrt{u}-u^{\frac{3}{2}}~du

    =-\frac{1}{3} \left( \frac{2}{3}u^{\frac{3}{2}}-\frac{2}{5} u^{\frac{5}{2}} \right)+C

    =-\frac{2}{3} \left( \frac{1}{3}u^{\frac{3}{2}}-\frac{1}{5} u^{\frac{5}{2}} \right)+C

\int \frac{\sqrt{1+2lnx}}{x}\, dx<br />

    Let u=1+2ln \ x \Rightarrow \frac{du}{dx}=\frac{2}{x}

    \int \frac{\sqrt{u}}{x}~\frac{x~du}{2}

    \frac{1}{2}\int \sqrt{u}~du

    \frac{1}{2}.\frac{2}{3} u^{\frac{3}{2}}+C

    \frac{1}{3} u^{\frac{3}{2}}+C

    a) Substitute u = 1 + 2 \ln x.

    b) Substitute u = 1 - x^3.

    a more direct substitution is to replace those u by u^2.
