Okay, here's the problem: integrate ((x^3) - 1) / ((x^3) + x) dx

2. Relevant equations

What is the solution and the method?

3. The attempt at a solution

I know this involves partial fractions, which I attempted to no avail, since the numerator is the same degree as the denominator. I even factored the numerator into (x - 1)((x^2) + x + 1), but I can't seem to figure out what to do.
