So sorry if this has been discussed elsewhere before. I know it may be trivial but for some reason I just can't get it. I simply can't seem to integrate the square root of (1 + 1/4x). This problem has been highlighted for a reason, but I'm missing the point. Any input is much appreciated.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
