Homework Help: Calc 2 Integral.

  1. Sep 18, 2014 #1
    1. I need help solving this integral, I've tried using trig substitution, but I'm getting nowhere with it.


    Like I said before, I tried changing the bottom to a radical and trig substituting but it doesn't seem to get me anywhere. Thanks in advanced for any help.

    Welcome to PF;
    You are trying to evaluate the indefinite integral:
    $$\int \frac{x}{(6x-x^2)^{3/2}}\;dx$$

    Note: ##(6x-x^2)^{3/2} = x^{3/2}(6-x)^{3/2}## ... probably won't help a lot: try again but complete the square first.
