# Math Help - Integration by partial fractions

1. ## Integration by partial fractions

Hey, I was wondering if somebody could check over the following integration problem for me.

Int (x^2 + 1 ) / (X^2 - 3x + 2) dx

I used partial fractions (disregard title)

for an answer I got ln absolute value (x-2) - ln absolute value (x-1) + c

gracias !!!!!

edit: i originally thought you did int. by parts, but partial fractions makes more sense.

2. Why is there division in the integral. Do you mean perhaps to say * insteand of /

3. It is written as

integrate: (x^2 + 1 ) (divided by) (X^2 - 3x + 2) dx

If you were talking about why is there a / instead * in relation to my original comment of int. by parts, I wrote down the wrong method. (my bad )

it is indeed supposed to be divided by, sorry for any confusion.
