integral of x/(x(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); ^{2}+2x+2)dx

first thing i did was complete the square to get

x/((x+1)^{2}+1

i tried then having x+1 = tanx but that didnt work out

because of the x on top i cant just set w = x+1

what would the right substitution be?

any hints or help would be appreciated
