Homework Help: Trigonomic Integration question!

  1. Feb 5, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Sorry for the lack of latex.

    The question is this.

    Integral of ((1+x)/(1+(x^2))) dx

    If someone could put that together on latex, that would be awesome!

    3. The attempt at a solution
    Im not exactly sure what to do, at all. So really any help is great. Even just a hint and I will probably get it. Thanks!

    Split into two integrals.
    [tex]\int \frac{1 + x}{1 + x^2}dx[/tex]
    [tex]= \int \frac{1}{1 + x^2} dx + \int \frac{x}{1 + x^2} dx [/tex]

    The first is pretty straightforward. The second requires only an ordinary substitution.

    ((1+x)/(1+(x^2))) dx = (1/(1+(x^2)) dx+(x)/(1+(x^2)) dx

    Yes, first part is trigonometric and second is log..

    Do you mean


    \int \frac{1 + x} {1 + x^2} dx


    Re-write the integrand as two terms
