∫ (5^(3/x) - (x^8 + 9)^1/3 ) / 3x^2

will u, for sub. be = x^8 + 9?

Then du is = 8x^7 dx

x^7 dx = 1/8 du

Thank you!

**Reiny**, Friday, April 20, 2012 at 11:00pmAs Steve mentioned yesterday for this same question, the 5^(3/x) is a stopper.

I put your expression in the Wolfram integrator with the necessary changes in brackets, and frankly I don't even want to understand their answer.

**Steve**, Saturday, April 21, 2012 at 5:41amActually, I have to reconsider.

If u = 5^(3/x)

du = ln5 5^(3/x) (-3/x^2)

we have the form, and we end up with

∫ (5^(3/x) - (x^8 + 9)^1/3 ) / 3x^2 dx

= -1/(9ln5) ∫ u - (x^8 + 9)^1/3 ) du

The show stopper is that ∛(x^8+9)
