## Homework Statement

I need to use a substitution technique and then the table of integration to integrate the following:

∫ x

^{5}√(x

^{4}– 4) dx

and i am given a hint which is x

^{5}= (x

^{3})(x

^{2})

I would assume that

u = x

^{4}– 4, then du = 4x

^{3}

and that at some point a

^{2}= 4 and a = 2

However, the x

^{5}= (x

^{3})(x

^{2}) is confusing the heck out of me. Need help!
