# Math Help - [SOLVED] Integral partial fractions, don't see the trick needed

1. ## [SOLVED] Integral partial fractions, don't see the trick needed

The problem says to solve the following integral (I'm guessing a partial fractions involved) : $\int \frac{x^2-5x+8}{x^3-3x^2+3x-1} dx$. I'm not able to factorize the denominator, I don't see the trick to solve this integral... I'm asking you a tip, not the full answer, please. Thanks in advance.

2. The denominator factors to $(x-1)^{3}$

Now, can you continue?.

3. Yes I can continue, thanks... sorry I forgot the formula for Newton's binomial. Edit : My answer is $\ln | x-1|+\frac{3x-5}{(x-1)^2}+C$.

4. By Jove, I think you got it.
