What are your thoughts on how to do the integration?

Sorry, but I don't understand what you mean. Do you mean how I technically evaluate it?

What I'm getting at is the rules of the forum say you need to show a serious attempt at doing the problem yourself. Simply saying "I tried but couldn't figure it out" doesn't cut it.
