Hi, am I on the right track with this U-substitution problem?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Evaluate the indefinite integral

2. Relevant equations

integral of x^2(x^3 + 5)^9 dx

3. The attempt at a solution

integral of x^2(x^3 + 5)^9 dx

Let u = x^3 + 5

du = 2x^2

1/2du = x^2

1/2 integral u^9 du

1/2 (u^10)/10 + c

1/20 u^10 + c

1/20 (x^3 + 5)^10 + c
