Solution. It is clear that once we develop
the through the binomial formula, we will get a
polynomial function easy to integrate. But it is clear that this will
take a lot of time with big possibility of doing mistakes !!
Let us consider the substitution (the reason behind is the presence of x in the integral since the derivative of is 2x). Indeed, we have du = 2x dx and therefore
We may check that the new integral is easier to handle since . Hence
which does not complete the answer since the indefinite integral is a function of x not of u. Therefore, we have to go back and replace u by u(x):
