## Homework Statement

Solve the integral of [xln(x^2+9)] wrt x using the tabular method.

## Homework Equations

By parts using the tabular method.

## The Attempt at a Solution

u:

1. ln(x^2+9)

2. 2x/(x^2+9)

dv:

1. x

2. (1/2)x^2

3. (1/6)x^3

The answer for now is : ((1/2)x^2)ln(x^2+9) -(1/3)[integral of](x^4/(x^2+9))dx

dividing x^4/(x^2+9) gives (x^2)-9+(81/x^2+9)

however integrating 1/(x^2+9) would give a trig function whereas the answer given contains to trig function at all. Where have I gone wrong in my method? Thanks in advance!
