Learn how to solve integrals of rational functions problems step by step online. Find the integral int((x^2-1)/x)dx. Expand the fraction \frac{x^2-1}{x} into 2 simpler fractions with common denominator x. Simplify the resulting fractions. Expand the integral \int\left(x+\frac{-1}{x}\right)dx into 2 integrals using the sum rule for integrals, to then solve each integral separately. The integral \int xdx results in: \frac{1}{2}x^2.

Final Answer

$\frac{1}{2}x^2-\ln\left(x\right)+C_0$
