## Homework Statement

I want to evaluate the following integral:

[itex]\int \frac{\sqrt{a^2-x^2}(a-x)^{-1/c}(x-d)}{x^2-b^2}dx[/itex]

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

I rewrote it in the following form (to try to make it simpler):

[itex]\int \frac{\sqrt{a+x}(a-x)^{1/2-1/c}(x-d)}{x^2-b^2}dx[/itex]

I have no idea how to start integrating this. I have tried putting it into Mathematica, but Mathematica didn't evaluate it.

Any ideas will be very much appreciated.
