## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hello all, how are you?

we are currently working on integration by substitution, what do you guys think about the way i solved this one:

Find: [tex] \int \frac{(t+1)^2}{t^2} dt[/tex]

My solution:

[tex] \int \frac{(t+1)^2}{t^2} dt

= \int 1dt + \int \frac{2}{t} dt + \int \frac{1}{t^2} dt

= t + 2ln|t| + \frac{1}{-3t^3}

[/tex]

When i check it by takin the derivative of my answer... it matches up with the stuff up top... but theres no substitution... am i doing it the right way? is there any faster way?

Thanks,

NN

Note:I realized i posted this at a wrong section... plz move it if you can. Thanks and sorry about that.
