    you can't factor that

    best approach is to complete the square and then trig substitution

    @lilMissMindset To complete the square x^2 +2x+10= x^2+2x+1+9 = (x+1)^2 +3^2 \[\int\limits_{}^{}\frac{dx}{(x+1)^2+3^2}\] Now complete the rest

    Remember \[\int\limits_{}^{}\frac{dt}{x^2+a^2} = \frac{1}{a} \tan^{-1}(\frac{x}{a})\]

    You can eaily prove the above by substituting x = atan(theta)

    but it cannot be done with partial fraction if it cannot be factored

    traile , it willl become very complex then

    yeah, im supposed to use that, partial fraction

    @LOL, whjy do you want to complicate things when there is a aeasier method available. If you still insist on partial fraction, then it is fine

    there is either a typo, or it's impossible

    I mean that using partial fractions is impossible... or at least redundant

    Take x+1 = t dx=dt You still get the same thing with partial fractions too

    how would you do this with partial fractions? I don't see it... perhaps I am wrong though, it wouldn't be the first time :P

    do you think quadratic factors can be use

    \[\frac{1}{t^2+9} = \frac{At+B}{t^2+9}\] we see a = 0, B=1 We again get back the same thing. So partail fraction approach should be useless
