To find `int (xdx)/(2x^2+3)^5`

Let `u=2x^2+3` , then `du=4x dx rArr 1/4du=xdx` . The substitution gives:

`int (xdx)/(2x^2+3)^5`

`=int 1/(4u^5) du`

`=int 1/4*u^-5 du`

Applying the formula `int x^n dx = x^(n+1)/(n+1)+C` we get:




Replacing `u` with `2x^2+3` , we get the required solution as:

For this problem you want to use U-substitution. Set u = to 2x^2 + 3, therefore du = 4x dx, or du/4 = x dx.

(1/4) the integral of u^-5 du.

Which with the power rule, would mean you add one to the exponent and divide by the resulting number. This gives you:

(-1/16)(1/(2x^2 + 3)^4)

We can asnwer this integration by method of substitution.







`=(1/4)int t^(-5)dt`




where c is integrating constant.
