Evaluate the integral \int_0^2 \frac{24}{x^2 + 4} \,dx


Evaluate the integral {eq}\int_0^2 \frac{24}{x^2 + 4} \,dx {/eq}

Integration by Substtution

Evaluating some integrals substitution method is very helpful to make the integrals easier. A suitable portion of the integrand is generally substituted by a variable and the differential coefficient of the substituted variable with respect to the original variable is calculated to substitute the differential also. The variable is substituted back after integration.
