Examine the integrals below. Consider the multiple tools available for evaluating integrals and use the best strategy for each. After evaluating the integral, write a short description of your method.

Before integrating, rewrite the integrand using a fractional exponent.

Let

.Because

is always positive, this solution will not need an absolute value sign.

Think about the shape of this graph, does it have any symmetry?

Before integrating, use properties of logarithms to rewrite the integrand.
