Partial Fractions Help.

  1. Nov 12, 2013 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    ∫▒√(1+x^2 )/x dx


    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution
    I don't know how to break this up. I know we break partial fraction problems up based on their denominator, however the denominator i this problem is just 'x'.

    Just write it as the sum of two fractions. No partial fractions needed.

    That problem is not appropriate to partial fractions. The method makes no sense for it.
