Are you having trouble with the integration or the final answer?

u substitution works fine here, let u = (1 + x) and integrate. The final answer is a simple algebraic trick, nothing spectacular.

You're looking for the integral of [tex]\mathop \smallint \nolimits_0^{x/n} \frac{1}{{(1 + x')^2 }}dx'[/tex] (technically you're not allowed to have your variable of integration in your bounds)

Make a substitution so that your integral now becomes [tex]\mathop \smallint \nolimits_0^{x/n} \frac{1}{{(u)^2 }}du\frac{{dx}}{{du}}[/tex] and remember to compute dx/du.

What, when you take its derivative becomes [tex]\frac{1}{{u^2 }}[/tex]? Find what that is, substitute back in for what you had set u to and you can plug in your integration limits and wala!
