Problem 15 Easy Difficulty

Evaluate the integral. $\int \frac{x-1}{x^{2}+2 x} d x$


$I=x(\ln x)^{2}-2\left(x \ln x-x+C_{1}\right)=x(\ln x)^{2}-2 x \ln x+2 x+C,$ where $C=-2 C_{1}$

So here we are given examples of certain integral and this is in the form of partial fraction decomposition. So you have to do that process. Yeah. Which is equivalent to a over X plus B over X plus two or A and D are constants. Mhm Okay, so let's multiply both sides by X and x plus two. So this would be x minus one equals A times X plus two plus B times x. So let's group terms together. So A plus B, X plus two, A plus B. So we can see by just coefficients, A plus B is equivalent to one to A plus B equals negative one. So negative A minus B equals negative one. So A is equivalent to negative choose. So it is equivalent to negative to be would be equivalent to three in this case. So now we can apply our integral directly. So a was negative negative two. So negative two over X. Which is just a constant plus three over X plus two T X. So this is equivalent to negative two natural log of X Plus three. Natural log of a. Yeah exposed to. So this would be the same thing as the natural log of X to the -2. Which would be X In this form plus three natural log of X plus two. Or we can write as the que perform plus our integration constant. And this gives our final answer
