    \[ \frac{x-1}{x^2 \left(x^2+1\right)}=\frac{A}{x^2}+\frac{B}{x}+\frac{C x+D}{x^2+1} \]

    \[ A(x^2+1)+Bx(x^2+1)+(Cx+D)x^2=x-1 \]

    Multiply bith sides by x^2 and make x =0, you get A= -1

    Do you know how to take it from there, @Silenthill ?

    \[ \frac{x-1}{x^2 \left(x^2+1\right)}=\frac{A}{x^2}+\frac{B}{x}+\frac{C x+D}{x^2+1} \] Multilpy both sides by x^2 + 1 and make x = i\[ \frac {i-1} {-1} = Ci + D= -i+1\\ C=-1\\ D=1\\ \]

    \[ \frac{x-1}{x^2 \left(x^2+1\right)}=\frac{A}{x^2}+\frac{B}{x}+\frac{C x+D}{x^2+1} \] Multiply both sides by x and let x goes to Infinity, you get 0 = B + C B=-C=1 Putting everything together, you get \[ \frac{x-1}{x^2 \left(x^2+1\right)}=\frac{1-x}{x^2+1}-\frac{1}{x^2}+\frac{1}{x} \]

    given question equals x/(x^2(x^2+1) -1/(x^2(x^2+1) first part can be done usin u=x^2 and then applying partial factor method whereas the second part can be seperated as1/(x^2)-1/(x^2+1) and then both the parts can be integrated easily
