The question is to evaluate the integral in the attachment. My idea was to use partial fraction decomposition and so my new integral looked like:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A/((e^x)+1) + B/((e^x)+5) where I got A=-2 and B=-10

When I integrate this, I get:

-2ln((e^x)+1) - 10ln((e^x)+5)

However, this is not the answer.
