Find the indefinite integral of 16x^2+36+1/(16x^2+36) with respect to x

2. Relevant equations

Anything possible to take an anti-derivative

3. The attempt at a solution

I have absolutely no idea on how to deal with this problem. I can take an anti-derivative of the first 2 terms just fine but that fraction term just messes with me. I don't know how to take it on. It kind of looks like 1/(1+x^2) which would have an anti-derivative of arctan(x) but I really don't know how to handle this.

Thanks for the help
