# Integral of (1-3x)/(2x-8+x^2)

### Videos

$-\frac{13}{6}\ln\left|4+x\right|-\frac{5}{6}\ln\left|x-2\right|+C_0$

## Step-by-step explanation

Problem

$\int\frac{1-3x}{x^2+2x-8}dx$
1

Factor the trinomial $-8+2x+x^2$ finding two numbers that multiply to form $-8$ and added form $2$

$\begin{matrix}\left(-2\right)\left(4\right)=-8\\ \left(-2\right)+\left(4\right)=2\end{matrix}$

$-\frac{13}{6}\ln\left|4+x\right|-\frac{5}{6}\ln\left|x-2\right|+C_0$
