(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

[itex]\int[/itex][itex](x^2-2x+3)dx/(x^3-x^2-x-2)[/itex]

2. Relevant equations

Trig substitution/ partial fractions?

3. The attempt at a solution

I used partial fractions to reduce the integral down to:

[itex]\int[/itex][itex]dx/(x-2)[/itex]+[itex]\int[/itex][itex](x-1)dx/(x^2+x+1)[/itex]

The first integral is easy enough, but the second one I'm not sure where to start.

Thanks in advance!
