1. Homework Statement

Using a suitable substitution find the solution to:

∫ (x+2)50(x+1)dx


2. Homework Equations



3. The Attempt at a Solution

I can't find a solution to this using substitution. Wolfram alpha give an answer that is too long to be calculated by hand. Can anyone work out the solution, or is there a mistake in the question which means it can't be solved?

What do you get if you let u= x+ 2? That seems to me to be the obvious substitution. It is certainly not "too long to be calculated by hand".
