[tex]\int\frac{4}{x(x+3)}[/tex]

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I can get to s certain point and I know I need to do substitution but, everytime I try a substitution it just creates a more difficult problem.

[tex]4\int(x^{-1}(x+3)^{-1})[/tex]

I've tried substitution x^-1 for U and using (x+3)^-1 for dv but, none of it works. If someone could give me a gentle nudge it would be appreciated.

Thanks
