    How might I find the integral solution for the following:

    (Sorry for the poor notation)

    [tex]\int[/tex]sinc(4x*[tex]\sqrt{(1-2/x)}[/tex]) dx from -[tex]\infty[/tex] to [tex]\infty[/tex]

    i find your writting a little bit ambiguous, what is 'sinc'?

    Put the argument of the sinc equal to u, then the integral becomes:

    sin(u)/u 1/(du/dx)


    Express du/dx in terms of u.
