please help I have no idea how to integrate this problem
just expand the expression
(3+x)x^(1/2) = 3x^(1/2) + x^(3/2)
then just use the power rule on each term.
but with integration there is no power rule wouldn't I have to use substitution?
d/dx x^n = n x^(n-1)
∫n x^(n-1) dx = x^n
or, as it is ually written,
∫x^n dx = 1/(n+1) x^(n+1)
∫x^(1/2) dx = 2/3 x^(3/2)
see when you take the derivative of that, that you get x^(1/2)
