intergral 2x^2/(x^2+4x+8)

• calculus(integral) -

I did a long division and got

2x^2/(x^2+4x+8) = 2 - (4x+8)/(x^2 + 4x + 8)
= 2 - 2(2x+4)/(x^2 + 4x + 8)

I noticed that the derivative of x^2 + 4x + 8 is 2x+4 , which I have sitting on top.
Ahhh, logs!!!!

∫2x^2/(x^2+4x+8) dx
=∫ ( 2 - 2(2x+4)/x^2 + 4x + 8) ) dx
= 2x - 4 ln(x^2 + 4x + 8)

Use integration by parts to evaluate the definite integral. Intergral: xsec^2(6x) dx I set u=sec^2(6x) and dv=x, but the problems seems to get harder as I go on.
