    you don't need partial fractions .. assume x = 3 tany .. then substitute .. you would get get 1/3 taninv(x/3) as your answer...

    ..And how can you know to assume a tan. function?

    you can assume the tan function because you change the coordinates. .. see integration is nothing but area under the curve .. when you integrate f(x) in x you find area under the curve for when f(x)is plotted in xy plane.. when i write x = tany I am calculating area for the same graph in a different plane .. value of my area would remain the same... I hope this helps
