integrate with respect to x this quadractic fractions?
integrate with respect to x:

2x² - 9x + 1
÷
( (x-1)²(x+2) ) dx

thats the best way i can think of laying it out without having to take a photo of the equation.

Have no clue where to start its been years since i did these ... any help would be awesome?
thanks

You need to partial fraction the expression first. In this case it will break down into
A/(x+2)+B/(x-1)+C/(x-1)^2
