    Tough Integral

    thats the thing i know how to integrate ln(x) where x is any function wih power 1. ln(x^3-1) let t = x^3-1 --> 3x^2dx=dt when i sub that in i dont know how to proceed =ln(t)dt/3x^2 --> maybe another substitution, ie let u=3x^2, du=6xdt, any help guys?

    Tough Integral

    Homework Statement Integral of: 2x^3/(x^3-1) with respect to x. The Attempt at a Solution you can divide them to get sum of integrals. =int(2,x) + 2*int(1/(x^-1),x) =2x + 2*int(1/(x^-1),x) Im having trouble proceeding with the last part, i just need help getting started.
