I need to evaluate the definite integral of (x+2(1-x^2)^(1/2))dx from x=0 to x=1 using geometry formulas.

2. Relevant equations

None known.

3. The attempt at a solution

I'm actually trying to help one of my friends in AP Calculus with this problem. I know how to solve this with trigonometric substitutions, but they have not learned how to do these yet in their class. How do you use geometry formulas to solve something like this?
