Int(dx/x) = 1 + Int(dx/x), ending up with 1 = 0. Why was there a discrepancy in the integration?

You're missing an integration constant.

[tex]u=\frac{1}{x}[/tex]

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

[tex]dv=1dx[/tex]

[tex]v=x+c[/tex]

Please tell me if I am wrong.

Regardless, you are looking for the result to be ln|x|+c.
