Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1How the heck did wolfram jump from the first step to the second step? I feel like I am missing something.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1It's the second step I am not getting.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\int\limits\limits_{}^{}\frac{ x }{ (x^22x+5)^2 }dx\] I put that intergal into wolfram. Then I put the show steps.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1THe picture I posted is near the final answer.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I see no other way to solve it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Eww... More partial fractions?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1But we only have 1 term divedby a polynomial . You have to use partial fractions.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Partial fractions do not help at all. You can't reduce this.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Allright. It's almost 4:30 AM here. If someone could leave an explanation I would GREATLY appreciate it once I wake up in the morning.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[\Large \sqrt{x^22x+5}=\sqrt{(x1)^2 + 4}\] use trigonometric substitution \[\Large x1=2\tan \theta\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@sirm3d : Okay why did you square root?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2oh, sorry, it was squared. the partial fraction is \[\frac{x}{(x^22x+5)^2}=\frac{Ax+B}{x^22x+5}+\frac{Cx+D}{(x^22x+5)^2}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So it's actually possible to split this up? O_o .

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2i see that, too. \[x=(1/2)(2x)=(1/2)(2x2+2)=(1/2)(2x2) + (1/2)(2)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[\frac{x}{(x^22x+5)^2}=\frac{(1/2)(2x2)}{(x^22x+5)^2}+\frac{(1/2)(2)}{(x^22x+5)^2}\] for the first term, use the substitution \[y=x^22x+5,\quad dy=(2x2)dx\] for the second term, use the trigonometric substitution \[x1=2\tan\theta\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So now I have: \[\int\limits_{}^{}\frac{ 1 }{ (x^22x+5)^2 }dx\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1But we have a and b are 0 so the first term is entirely 0.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2i realized that too, partial fraction doesn't work. check my previous post.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I get that which doesn't seem right...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[x1=2\tan\theta\\x^22x+5=4\sec^2\theta\] \[\large (1/2)\int \frac{du}{u^2}+\int\frac{2\sec^2 \theta d\theta}{(2\sec \theta)^4}\]
