Evaluate : $ \int \large\frac{3x+5}{\sqrt{x^2-8x+7}}$$dx $

1 Answer

  • $\int\large\frac{(px+q)}{\sqrt{ax^2+bx+c}}$$dx.$,where p,q,a,b,c are constants,we are to find real numbers such that \[px+q=A\frac{d}{dx}(ax^2+bx+c)+B.\]
  • Therefore $px+q=A(2ax+b)+B.$
  • To determine A and B we equate the coefficients from both sided,the coefficients of x and the constant terms.A and B are thus obtained and hence the integral is reduced to one of the known forms:
  • $\int\large\frac{dx}{\sqrt{x^2+a^2}}$$=\log\mid x+\sqrt{x^2+a^2}\mid+c.$
Step 1:
Let $I=\int\large\frac{3x+5}{\sqrt{x^2-8x+7}}$$dx$
Equating the coefficients of $x$ we get,
$3=2A\Rightarrow A=\large\frac{3}{2}$
Equating the constant terms,
$\Rightarrow B=17$
$\therefore A=\large\frac{3}{2}$ and $B=17$
Step 2:
Now substituting the values of $A$ and $B$ we get,
Consider $I_1$
Put $x^2-8x+7=t$
$\Rightarrow (2x-8)dx=dt$
$\therefore I_1=\int\large\frac{dt}{\sqrt t}$
$\Rightarrow \sqrt t+c_1$
$\Rightarrow \sqrt{x^2-8x+7}+c$
Step 3:
Consider $I_2=\int\large\frac{dx}{\sqrt{x^2-8x+7}}$
$\Rightarrow \int\large\frac{dx}{\sqrt{x-4)^2-16+7}}$
Step 4:
Combining the terms we get,
$I=\large\frac{3}{2}$$\sqrt{x^2-8x+7}+17\log\mid (x-4)+\sqrt{x^2-8x+7}\mid$
