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 ...
