Sorry I tried to use LaTex but I just cant understand it!

(4x+1)^1/2

(4x+1)^3/2 /6

(9^3/2 /6 ) - ( 1^3/2 /6)

=27/6 - 1/6 = 26/6

(4x+1)^1/2

(4x+1)^3/2 /6

(9^3/2 /6 ) - ( 1^3/2 /6)

=27/6 - 1/6 = 26/6

Sorry - missed a step.

When you integrate you add one on to the power then take it to the bottom and divide it by that power - in further integration you multiply that by the middle bit differentiated (whats in the brackets) so that =4.

so 3/2 x 4 is at the bottom - you flip it ie take the 2 up whaich gives : 2(4x+1)^3/2 all divided by 3x4 which is 12.

then simply cancel the 2 and the 12 leaving you with 6.

Hope that helps.
