Homework Help: Calculus

Posted by Nikki on Saturday, October 23, 2010 at 7:31pm.

int(dx/(x^2+9)) u = x/3

Use the indicated substitution (above) to evaluate the integral. Confirm answer by differentiation.

Okay, so I found that du/dx is 1/3. dx is 3du. Just by looking at the integral I can tell this is some form of tan^-1(x), if we change it to int(1/(x^2+9) * dx). Thing is, I don't really know where to put in u to make this work. Help please???

Thank you!
