1/(x^2-1) dx

?

**bobpursley**, Wednesday, January 9, 2013 at 7:56pmdraw a right triangle, x as the hypotensue, 1 as the adjacent side to angle theta, and the opposite side is sqrt (x^2-1)

costheta=1/x

-sintheta* dT=-1/x^2 dx or

dx= x^2 sinTheta dT

the integral is now...

INt 1/tanTheta*x^2 sinTheta dT

INT cosT/SinT* sec^2T*sinT dT

INT= secT dT=ln(secT+tanT)

= ln(x+x^2-1)

check all that, I did it in my head.
