So you're stating that u substitutes for \(\displaystyle (x+1)^{-5}\) and I integrate from there and subsitute back at the end?I certainly would. Basically, it allows you to put the variable shift x+1 into the numerator, where it is not raised to the 5th power.
I guess so. It's always good to leave the OP something to do. (Evilgrin)Perhaps we could let cwashburn do that?
