This looks like a tan^-1x type answer but the actual answer is different and I am not sure of the process to get there.

okay so separate it out:
The part with the 3 is just arctan. Use a substitution on the other part:
u = x^2 + 1 --> du = 2xdx ---> dx = du/(2x), and so the integral should give a natural log.
