I'm trying to antidifferentiate a function in order to find the volume of a solid. The function comes out to be (2x+1)/(x^2+8x+16)

2. Relevant equations

N/A

3. The attempt at a solution

I've tried a multitude of things. I figured that partial fractions would work, but it turns out that since the denominator is a square that doesn't work. I'm not asking you to solve, just a nudge in the right direction
