You'll then end up with two separate integrals you'll have to bust some sweet moves on. One should be straight up *u*-substitution and the other well...here's a BIG hint (it's not a bad idea to have this memorized)

$\displaystyle \displaystyle \int\frac{dx}{a^2+x^2} = \frac{1}{a}\tan^{-1}\left(\frac{x}{a}\right) + C$
