Question 08 (h) 

Shortanswer questions! No credit will be given for the answer (even if it is correct) without the accompanying work. Evaluate the indefinite integral 
Make sure you understand the problem fully: What is the question asking you to do? Are there specific conditions or constraints that you should take note of? How will you know if your answer is correct from your work only? Can you rephrase the question in your own words in a way that makes sense to you? 
If you are stuck, check the hint below. Consider it for a while. Does it give you a new idea on how to approach the problem? If so, try it! 
Hint 

You will need your trig identities ready for this one. Recall . 
Checking a solution serves two purposes: helping you if, after having used the hint, you still are stuck on the problem; or if you have solved the problem and would like to check your work.

Please rate my easiness! It's quick and helps everyone guide their studies. To evaluate , we will use trigonometric substitution. The part with the square root is . We only have freedom over what we do to x, and we'd like to use a trig identity to help deal with the square root. We recall . If then . Let's make the change of variables (by solving for x. If then : . Now, we can use a trig identity: . Finally, we need to go back in terms of x. If then and . This means we can replace by . Also, . Thus, our final answer is: .
