##  Step-by-step Solution 

Problem to solve:

$\int\frac{2x-1}{x^2-8x+15}dx$

Specify the solving method

1

Rewrite the expression $\frac{2x-1}{x^2-8x+15}$ inside the integral in factored form

$\int\frac{2x-1}{\left(x-3\right)\left(x-5\right)}dx$
2

Rewrite the fraction $\frac{2x-1}{\left(x-3\right)\left(x-5\right)}$ in $2$ simpler fractions using partial fraction decomposition

$\frac{2x-1}{\left(x-3\right)\left(x-5\right)}=\frac{A}{x-3}+\frac{B}{x-5}$
