Answers (1)

Answer: -\frac{25}{3} \log |x+5|+\frac{4}{3} \log |x+2|+c

Given: \int \frac{x^{2}}{x^{2}+7 x+10} d x

Hint: Using Partial Fraction and  \int \frac{1}{x} d x


             Let I=\int \frac{x^{2}}{x^{2}+7 x+10} d x

            \frac{x^{2}}{x^{2}+7 x+10}=\frac{x^{2}}{x^{2}+5 x+2 x+10}=\frac{x^{2}}{x(x+5)+2(x+5)}=\frac{x^{2}}{(x+5)(x+2)}


            Multiply by  (x+5)(x+2)


            Put x = -2

            4=A(0)+B(3) \Rightarrow B=\frac{4}{3}

            Put x = -5

           25=A(-3)+B(0) \Rightarrow A=-\frac{25}{3}


            \therefore \int \frac{x^{2}}{(x+5)(x+2)} d x=\frac{-25}{3} \int \frac{1}{x+5} d x+\frac{4}{3} \int \frac{1}{x+2} d x

            =\frac{-25}{3} \log |x+5|+\frac{4}{3} \log |x+2|+c
