This is also one I can't figure out:

∫ x^3 (2x^2 + 1)^1/2 dx

u is obviously = 2x^2 + 1

du = 4x dx

x dx = 1/4 du

1/4 ∫ x^3 u^1/2

from here I know I can't integrate because I can't have more than 1 variable.

Thank you

I rewrote it as

∫ ( x(2x^2+1)^(1/2) (x^2) dx

I let u = x^2 and dv = x(2x^2 + 1)^(1/2) dx

du/dx = 2x

du = 2x dx

v = (1/6)(2x^2 + 1)^(3/2)

so we need: uv - ∫ v du

uv

= (1/6)(2x^2+1)^(3/2 (x^2)

= (x^2/6)(2x^2 + 1)^(3/2)

∫ (1/6)(2x^2 + 1)^(3/2) (2x) dx

= (1/30)(2x^2 + 1)^(5/2)

finally our integral

= (x^2/6)(2x^2 + 1)^(3/2) - (1/30)(2x^2 + 1)^(5/2)

= (1/30)(2x^2 + 1)^(3/2) [ 5x^2 - (2x^2 + 1) ]

= (1/30)(2x^2 + 1)^(3/2) (3x^2 - 1)

wow, you better check my steps on this one.
