i am working on a problem and i am stuck on the integral of ( sqrt (1+4x^2 ))  which somehow turns out to

(3/4 ) * (2x* sqrt(1+4^2) +ln (sqrt(1+4^2))

Some suggestions.
Factor the 4 out so you get 2*sqr(x^2 + ¼)
Now try substitution
      z = ¼ + x^2  and interagte by parts
Or
z = arsinh ( 4x) so that sqr (x^2 + ¼) = (1/4)*cosh(z)
