    \[\int\limits \frac{ x ^{2} +x+1}{ (x ^{2}+1)^{2} }dx\]

    Play around with the fraction.

    Maybe partial fraction decomposition

    did you try a trig sub i think that would work just fine

    tan^2(theta)+1=sec^2(theta)

    would the set up be integral x^2+x+1/sex^2 theta

    well you have to replace all the x's and the dx

    and also you are leaving off the square on bottom

    \[x=\tan(\theta) => dx=\sec^2(\theta) d \theta \] Replace all the x's with tan(theta) Replace the dx with sec^2(theta) d theta

    is it integral tan^2theta+tan theta+1/sec^2 theta d (theta)

    If I think what you wrote is what I think then yes. You mean the following I assume: integral of (tan^2(theta)+tan(theta)+1)/sec^2(theta) d(theta)

    \[\int\limits_{}^{}\frac{\tan^2(\theta)}{\sec^2(\theta)} d \theta +\int\limits_{}^{}\frac{\tan(\theta)}{\sec^2(\theta)} d \theta +\int\limits_{}^{} \frac{1}{\sec^2(\theta) }d \theta \]

    I do like gorv's way. But either way is fine. gorv's is simpler though.

    the first integral is just remembering that it is acran(x) the second one 1/2 is a constant multiple and you should know how to integrate t^(-2) at this point in calculus

    is the answer arctan(x)-1/2(x^2+1)+C

    Yes that's right you mean arctan(x)- 1/[2(x^2+1)] +C good job
