integrate 1/x dx w.r.t x
answer should be log(x) or ln(x)
and why

because d/dx log(x) = 1/x,
∫dx/x = log(x)+C
is that why enough, or is there yet something missing?
And, maybe you haven't seen the old chestnut
∫d(cabin)/cabin = log cabin + C = houseboat

Hi. How can I integrate 1/(X^3 +1) ? Thank you to anyone who can help me :) Write 1/(x^3 +1) as 1/[(x+1)(x^2x+1)] Then use integration by parts, letting dv = dx/(x^2 x +1) u = 1/(x+1) du = log (x+1) v = (2/sqrt3)arctan[(2x1)/sqrt3]
