    Solution Summary

    A complete, detailed solution to the problem is provided, including reminders of a number of mathematical properties that enable us to get the solution. We first use a "test u-substitution'' and show that that one won't give us a u-integral in which we can immediately write down the antiderivative of the integrand. Then we proceed to a u-substitution that will permit us to immediately write down the antiderivative of the integrand.
