At this point you can multiply through by 8 to get: x^2-12x+32>0 Then factor: (x-4)(x-8)>0 Now solve this inequality, subject to:

Your next step should be: (L-W)^2=0 So, how must L and W be related in order for this to be true?

I would look at a substitution like: u=\sqrt{x^2+4x+3}\implies dx=\frac{u}{x+2}\,du And the integral then becomes: I=\int\frac{1}{u^2+1}\,du

1. Yes, we're still far and away the best math help forum on the web...that much hasn't changed. The arcade you played is relatively new, and that was a lot of work to put together. We now support TikZ images, and that was a lot of work as well. But, we're always open to suggestions if you think something needs to be changed.
2. Hello and welcome back to MHB, mathbalarka!

We are happy to see that you have returned, and we look forward to your continued participation here!

Some of my notes on number theoretic topics are on a few primality tests and on Hardy & Littlewood's result (incomplete). The other articles are on quintics : about a brief description of Kiepert algorithm and a short introduction on quintic-solving algorithms, respectively. I have also written up an introductory thread on Riemann Hypothesis
