Could someone please work me out in these problem, I did a substitution on Ln(x) but ended up with (u^2+1)/(u+1)...

here is the question find the indefinite integral of ((ln x)^2+1)/(xln(x)+3)....

Are you sure it's not instead of ?

Oh I'm very sorry, it is actually (x ln x +3x)..... the 3 has 'x' with it..

So it is what I thought.

I would write it as .

Now this is just ONE possible substitution. I'm choosing it because I know that it will make the denominator the easiest to work with.

Let . Then your integral becomes

daym... I got the u^2-6u+10/u... but at that point I didn't know what to do.. so I tried to substitute other variables.. stupid me... Thank you very much...
