1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

(2(x)^2)/((x+1)((x)^2+1)) from 0 to 1

How did it get to this answer?(3/2)ln2-(pi/4)

Use partial fractions to write the integrand as
$$\frac A {x+1}+\frac{Bx+C}{x^2+1}$$

I did that.

I already have the solution. I'm just trying to figure out where the 3 came from.

Oh my! I thought you had a calculus question about integrating. Instead you have an elementary algebra question. See if you can figure out how to combine like terms and make your answer agree with the given answer.

What do you mean the indefinite answer? Where are the x's?
