Which methods to use to find the integrals.
I'm trying to find the indefinite integrals for the two equations below. What methods do I use to solve?

Thanks

Re: Which methods to use to find the integrals.
The first one can be solved by integration by parts, let $\displaystyle u = arctan x, dv = 2x^3 + x$
Second one can be done easily by a substitution of $\displaystyle u = 1 - x^2$

For the first one use integration by parts

$\displaystyle u=\tan^{-1}(x) \quad dv=2x^3+x$

For the 2nd one use a u du substitution

$\displaystyle u=1-x^2$
