    if you are not lazy, you will answer what is the general antiderivative of (2x^3+3x^2+x-1)/((x+1)*((x^2+2x+2)^2))

    I don't understand your question, and your equation is unclear. Do you mean

    [tex]\int ((2x^3+3x^2+x-1)/(x+1)(x^2+2x+2)) {\rm d}x =[/tex]

    [tex] \int\frac{2x^3+3x^2+x-1}{x+1}(x^2+2x+2){\rm d}x =[/tex]


    or do you mean

    [tex]\int ((2x^3+3x^2+x-1)/\left((x+1)(x^2+2x+2))\right) {\rm d}x =[/tex]

    [tex]\int\frac{2x^3+3x^2+x-1}{(x+1)(x^2+2x+2)}{\rm d}x =[/tex]
