2 1. (15 points) Evaluate the integral Z 3 x + 1 x 4 + x 3 + x 2 dx Solution. Here we do a partial fraction decomposition and write: 3 x + 1 x 4 + x 3 + x 2 = 3 x + 1 x 2 ( x 2 + x + 1) = A x + B x 2 + Cx + D x 2 + x + 1 Comparing the numerators of both sides gives us: Ax ( x 2 + x + 1) + B ( x 2 + x + 1) + ( Cx + D )( x 2 ) = 3 x + 1 Comparing the coefficients for x 3 , x 2 , x , and the constants gives us the following equations: A + C = 0 A + B + D = 0 A + B = 3 B = 1 Solving the equations gives us A = 2, B = 1, C = - 2, D = - 3 Now we can try to solve our integral. Z 3 x + 1 x 4 + x 3 + x 2 dx = Z 2 x dx + Z 1 x 2 dx + Z - 2 - 3 x x 2 + x + 1 dx = 2ln | x | - 1 /x + Z - 2 x - 3 x 2 + x + 1 dx Let us complete the square to evaluate the last integral. We let u = ( x +1 / 2) then Z - 2 x - 3 x 2 + x + 1
