Will just post any working as I go along...

I make use of (again) 'magic differentiation' to solve this problem .

Consider

Sub. , it becomes

sub .... After a few steps , we can obtain

The integral

Consider

Magic Differentiation !

So

The answer to the problem is

sorry for the late answer, actually, it holds for a better way.

try to find it, my time is bounded by now.
