    partial fractions?

    Wouldn't you use partial fractions for the problem:

    integral of [(x+6) dx / x(x+2)]

    If so, would the partial fractions be:

    (Ax+B)/x + C/(x+2)

    I guess not because I got this problem wrong....help?

    \displaystyle \frac{x+6}{x^2(x+2)} = \frac{A}{x} + \frac{B}{x^2} + \frac{C}{x+2}
