**Question**:

Evaluate the integral

**Solution**:

**3. Review of Algebra** (Binomial Theorem)

*Algebra is a very important and more fundamental branch of mathematics and it provides a useful tool for solving calculus problems. A review of algebra is therefore performed before the study of calculus.*
