Main Question or Discussion Point

Hey guys,

I could really use some hints on how to solve the integral [tex] \int \frac{x}{1+\sqrt{x}} dx [/tex]
I tried some substitutions, and doing some manipulations on the expression, with no solution. Any help would be much appreciated.

Regards,

Kerbox

Notice that x = (t - 1)^2.
 
you could use the residue theorem from complex analysis (I think)

The residue theorem does not pertain to antiderivatives.
