1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Integrate x^3 + 49 / x^2 + 5x + 4 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution Since the numerator has an x cubed, but the denominator only has an x squared, I know I need to divide the numerator by something. I'm not sure what, but maybe the denominator? At some point I know I need to factor the denominator, and I got (x+4)(x+1). Once I get that top part simplified I think I know what to do, I'm just not sure how to simplify.
