Question: Prevent maple for evaluating complex numbers

Hi. 

 

I have this expresssion:

 

int(sqrt(1+(diff(f(x), x))^2), x = 0 .. 17)

I know the result is:

30.75115129-1.376953493*10^(-8)*I

 

But it takes 13 minutes for maple to get to that solution, and i do not need the part with the I, complex number.

 

Is there any way to make maple evaluate this expression without computeing the complex number? A setting in generel, or some function to put the expression into?

 

Thanks in advance!
