Homework Help: Partial fractions decomposition?

  1. Sep 29, 2008 #1
    I'm trying to solve this integral but I'm not sure if I'm on the right track. My question is: can this integral be solved by partial fractions decomposition? I solved the problem that way but I'm not sure if it is the right answer. thanks!

    ∫1-x+2x^2-x^3 ÷ x(x^2+1)^2

    Yes, it can be solved by partial fractions. The denominator is already factorized.
