Continuing a much discussed topic of the various ways a particular improper integral can be evaluated, we give three further ways its generalization can be evaluated. Using techniques typically encountered immediately after the calculus sequence of courses we show how the improper integral can be evaluated using the beta and gamma functions, by first converting it to a double integral, and using a property of the Laplace transform.
