# C4 Integration watch

1. Please can someone help me?
In the Edexcel C4 Book, Exercise 6F Q3a I can't seem to understand why we have to substitute u^2 = x+4 instead of u=x+4
Any help would be great thanks
2. can you post the whole question please
3. You can substitute either u^2 = x+4 or u= x+4.
I did this exercise last night using u= x+4 and it worked.
However for some questions such as Q3 c, the substitution they offer is generally the best and easiest option to integrate.

Oh I see, thank you. I must've made a mistake because I used u=x+4 but didn't get the right answer.
