    You already have it.
    Divide numerator and denominator by c:
    Let C = 1 + 1/c

    can we straight sub C =1 + 1/c ? the c is the question not the original c (constant ) from the integrate( (dx/X+1)) ? dx ?

    Of course.

    the c is the question the original c (constant ) from the integral ( (dx/X+1)) ? dx ? am i right?

    In your original solution, the choice of adding ln c as the constant of integration was not unique. You could just as easily have added a different constant, say c' (i.e., without the natural log), without affecting the correctness of the solution.
