 Hi, I am trying to integrate some functions in Wolfram Alpha Pro, but the result I get uses a hyperbolic function, but since we have not learned that still at university, is it possible that I receive as a result a nonhyperbolic function? eg. integrate e^x/(4+e^(2x))^1/2 the result: sinh^(-1)(e^x/2)Thanks in advance.

 Integrate[e^x/(4 + e^(2 x))^1/2, x] % // TrigToExp -(ArcTan[2 e^-x]/(4 Log[e]))-((I Log[1 - 2 I e^-x])/(8 Log[e])) + (I Log[1 + 2 I e^-x])/(8 Log[e]) Answer

 Hi @Jose, thanks for the reply! The thing is I am using Wolfram Alpha and not Mathematica! Answer

 If you look below the sinh^-1 result you will see WolframAlpha also provides an alternate form of the result as a log Answer

 The alternate form is log(sqrt(e^(2 x)/4 + 1) + e^x/2) + constant Answer
