long division of the polynomial

How would this divide out? We have not really covered long division inside an integral in class yet. I know it splits into two integrals though right?

I would like to show you how to do the long divison but not sure how to display it on latex. - Sep 7th 2008, 08:46 PMShyam

there is a mistake in the first line written by redman: the numerator of the last integral should be , not

then and so on... - Sep 8th 2008, 12:39 AM11rdc11
You could also use partial fractions or trig substitution, whatever you feel more comfortable with.

actually, i'd approach it this way

Now in light of the fact that we know (we can get this via integration by parts, but you really should know this by heart), each of those two integrals are really easy with a simple linear substitution

Haha, I just realized the date on this thing. really late, but it might help someone anyway....
