Homework Help: Just an integral

  1. Feb 15, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data


    2. Relevant equations

    The answer is given: [tex]\frac{3}{2}(x-2)^\frac{3}{2}-3(x-2)^\frac{1}{3}+ln|1+(x-2)^\frac{1}{3}|+C[/tex]

    I have to get my answer to look just like this.

    3. The attempt at a solution

    [tex]u=x-2[/tex], [tex]du=dx[/tex]














    From here I don't know where to go to get the answer stated above or if I'm not on the right track.

    You are doing fine. Now, just multiply the first two terms out. You can throw the constants out, since you already have a '+C'. Now combine what's left.
