(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Evaluate the following integrals or state that they diverge. Use proper notation.

Integral from 0 to 2 of (x+1)/Square root(4-x^2)

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I just substituted x = 2sin(theta) thus dx = 2cos(theta)

I got to the point where it is .5(integral from 0 to 2 of 2tan(theta)) + .5(integral from 0 to 2 of sec(theta)).

I think theres an easier approach at the problem.

suggestions?
