Got an integral that for some reason I can't do, very much annoying me because this is supposed to be the stuff I am good at. A nudge in the right direction would be great, here it is:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex]\int \frac{(x+2)dx}{\sqrt{x^2+6x+4}}[/tex]

I have attempted completing the square on the bottom to get [itex](x+3)^2-5[/itex] and then I tried the substitution [itex]u=x+3[/itex]. After messing about with it a bit I got an answer but it didn't look right and it was a lot different from the answer I got off an online integrator and its answer really did look better.

Any help would be great thanks.
