Find the following integral ? How , is it by substitution !!!!!!!!

Calculus  not sure how but rewrote  Damon, Monday, June 16, 2014 at 4:06pm
I do not know but suspect you mean
∫1/(x^2 − 2x + 8)^(3/2) dx

∫(x2 − 2x + 8)^1.5 dx

says:
(x1)/[7 sqrt(x^22x+8) ]

Note that you have
∫1/(x^2 − 2x + 8)^(3/2) dx
= ∫1/((x1)^2 + 7)^(3/2) dx
If x1 = √7 tanu
(x1)^2 + 7 = 7 sec^2 u
dx = √7 sec^2 u du
and you have
∫1/(√7 secu)^3 * √7 sec^2 u du
= ∫ 1/7 cosu du
= 1/7 sinu
= 1/(7 csc u)
= 1/(7 √(1+cot^2 u))
= 1/(7 √(1 + (7/(x1)^2))
= 1/(7/(x1) √((x1)^2 + 7)
= 1/ 7√(x^22x+8)
Simpler than I'd have expected.
