Homework Help: Integral of x/(x^3+1)

  1. Mar 18, 2014 #1
    This is really a tough problem.
    I was able to solve it using partial fractions at first, completing the square, and several substitutions. I get the same answer as Wolfram Alpha.

    I feel as though there is an easier way. Any hints?

    I don't think so, I'd probably start with a partial fraction decomposition too. Maybe there's some trick substitution someone will think of, but I don't see it.
