Learn how to solve integrals of rational functions problems step by step online. Find the integral int((x^2)/(x-1))dx. Divide x^2 by x-1. Resulting polynomial. Expand the integral \int\left(x+1+\frac{1}{x-1}\right)dx into 3 integrals using the sum rule for integrals, to then solve each integral separately. The integral \int xdx results in: \frac{1}{2}x^2.

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