To integrate the expression ∫(x^2-9)^3(2x)dx using the substitution method, let u = x^2 - 9. Then, du/dx = 2x.

Substitute u = x^2 - 9 into the integral, and replace dx with du/2x:

∫(x^2-9)^3(2x)dx = ∫u^3 du/2x.

Now, cancel out the common factor of 2x in the denominator:

∫u^3 du/2x = ∫u^3 du/(2(√u)).

Now integrate with respect to u:

∫u^3 du/(2(√u)) = (1/2)∫u^(3/2) du.

Now integrate u^(3/2) with respect to u:

(1/2)∫u^(3/2) du = (1/2) * (2/5) * u^(5/2) + C.

Substitute back u = x^2 - 9:

(1/2) * (2/5) * (x^2 - 9)^(5/2) + C = (1/5)(x^2 - 9)^(5/2) + C.

Therefore, the antiderivative of (x^2-9)^3(2x)dx is (1/5)(x^2 - 9)^(5/2) + C.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
