[tex]\int_{1}^{3}\sqrt{y^2+\frac{1}{2}+\frac{1}{16y^4}}dy[/tex]

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

I don't know what to do with this integral, but i do feel like this can be simplified into something much simpler.

I tried rewriting it as [itex]\frac{1}{4}\int_{1}^{3}\sqrt{\frac{16y^6+8y^4+1}{y^4}}dy[/itex]

but I'm still not getting the same answer as in the back of the book
