    1) (x^2)/(x+1) dx
    note that \frac {x^2}{x + 1} = \frac {x^2 - 1 + 1}{x + 1} = \frac {x^2 - 1}{x + 1} + \frac 1{x + 1} = x - 1 + \frac 1{x + 1}

    and you should be able to integrate that



    2) cos(x)2^(sin(x)) dx
    do a substitution of u = \sin x, you will end up with \int 2^u~du which you should be able to handle. then just back-substitute when done
