Homework Help: Stuck on a antiderivative

  1. Feb 11, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Find [tex]\int \frac{x^{2}+3x+7}{\sqrt{x}}dx[/tex]

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I am reviewing for a test on tuesday. I can't see a good algebraic method to solve this using the fact that [tex]\int f(g(x))g'(x)dx=F(g(x))+C[/tex] so I am starting to think it requires a u-substitution which I am trying to get better at right now before the test. Can someone point me in the right direction here? Thankyou very much, I appreciate any help!

    Duh nevermind, I can just divide out the terms... *Sigh* I always spend lots of time on a problem, post it here, and then 3 minutes later I figure it out... Grr, sorry!
