2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

This isn't exactly a homework question, but it's close enough: it's from my old Calculus book (Larson), and I've been stuck on it for awhile. I just need a little hint or something. I've tried a u-substitution and haven't found anything that seems to help, and I've tried integration by parts, but nothing really simplifies--I just end up with an integral that is just as hard as before I try integration by parts. Maybe I'm using these techniques wrong or not seeing something obvious. No other 'harder' integration techniques should be needed (they come later in the book). Thanks!
