Just checking that the internal x^5rt(x^3+1)
can be done by either substitution or by parts. Can someone please confirm that the answer by substitution (i used x^3 +1) is 2/15(x^3+1)^5/2 - 2/9(x^3+1)^3/2 )
I am checking this because the integration by parts method gives a different format.
Thank you for you help

Yes, your result is correct (assuming lots of things about your ambiguous bracketing or lack thereof).
It's fairly easy to check answers using Wolfram Alpha - here's how I checked your integral without actually bothering to do it myself:
Edit: also, differentiation is easier than integration, and you can always check by differentiating your result. You can also get Wolfram to do this too...
