Do you mean

[tex]\int\sqrt{\frac{1+x}{1-x}}[/tex] ?

I don't think there is any way to express that in terms of elementary functions.

I think there actually is. Do the substitution u^2=(1+x)/(1-x). It just takes some patience.

Your hint is excellent. Working the problem in full is strictly against the rules. I'm going to report this and see if it can be removed. READ THE FORUM RULES.

Hi blu3jam! :smile:

Alternative hint: multiply top and bottom by √(1 - x). :smile:
