Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so you want to integrate this?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the numerator can be viewed as \[(x^2x) = x*(x1)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so \[( x*(x1) )/ ((x1)^4) \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now use substitution: \[u = x 1, x = u + 1, du=dx\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now you go from trying to find the integral of \[\int\limits_{}^{}(x^2  x) / (x1)^4 dx\] to \[\int\limits_{}^{} (u+1)/u^3 du\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so this one is easier, integrate this, then use the substitution relationship you established earlier and convert your solution to one in terms of x
