    Hi there

    Here are the solutions this problem.

    I solved it both using the change in variables and by brute force.

    I was shocked - shocked I tell you - to see that I got the same results in both methods.

    To further my amazement, even Maple agreed with me :)

    to tell you the truth, the change of variables here is a pain in the neck. The Brute force method was much more elegant in this case.

    Ok, if they give us a hint, then we better use it.

    We want to convert this integral to:

    There are three steps to solve this ...
