(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

$$\int \frac{x}{(1-x^2)} dx$$

2. Relevant equations

Integration by parts, by substitution, etc.

3. The attempt at a solution

I just can't remember how to begin this integration. I tried doing integration by parts, where

$$a(x) = x$$

$$a'(x) = 1$$

$$b(x) = $$

$$b'(x) = \frac{1}{(1-x^2)}$$

$$\int \frac{x}{(1-x^2)}dx = xb(x) - \int \frac{1}{(1-x^2)} dx$$

But couldn't work out what form b(x) should take.

Thanks in advance for any help
