Homework Help: Help with Integration

  1. Apr 14, 2008 #1
    1. How would I do this: [tex]\int[/tex][tex]\frac{x^{2} - 1}{x}[/tex]

    I don't need the answer, only the method I need to use (integration by parts, partial fractions etc.)

    Thanks.

    Just observe that

    [tex]\frac{x^2-1}{x}=\frac{x^2}{x}-\frac{1}{x}[/tex]
