I came in here looking for a math problem. I feel as if I have been tricked.

Just for you:
Find the integral of (t + 7t^2)^1/3 dt

Show your work!

Even Google seems stumped on that one

Nerd sniping. I was ready to do up a LaTex document and everything.

You're going to need more than google for this one...

Matlab wont even chew through something like, symbolically at least.

*EDIT* Just checked, matlab can't do it.

I'm sure the solution must be in one of those massive tables generated by the Russians on one of their math farms.

I suppose I should admit that I didn't pick that one at random. Found it in Richard Feynman's "Tips on Physics", page22: "...for example, (t + 7t^2)^1/3 is not possible to integrate in an easy fashion,..."

Feynman doesn't give the solution, and I certainly don't know it.

Google may not know the answer, but Wolfram Alpha does.

The indefinite integral of (t + 7t^2)^1/3 dt = 3t(7t+1)^1/3((7t+1)^1/3*(14t+1)-2F1(1/3,2/3;4/3;-7t))/(70*(7t+1)^1/3) + constant

where 2F1(a, b, c; x) is the hypergeometric function.

edit: Weirdboy, that's a very interesting site that I swear I have never heard of
