# Solution - Evaluate : ∫(x+1)/((x+2)(x+3))dx - HSC Science (Computer Science) 12th Board Exam - Mathematics and Statistics

ConceptMethods of Integration - Integration Using Partial Fractions

#### Question

Evaluate : ∫(x+1)/((x+2)(x+3))dx

#### Solution

Let I=∫(x+1)/((x+2)(x+3))dx

(x+1)/((x+2)(x+3))=A/(x+2)+B/(x+3)

x+1=A(x+3)+B(x+2)  .........(i)

∴ Putting x = -2 in equation (i) we get

-1 = A
∴ A = -1
∴ Putting x = -3 in equation (i) we get
-2 = -B
∴ B = 2

∴(x+1)/((x+2)(x+3))=1/(x+2)+2/(x+3)

∴ I=int[-1/(x+2)+2/(x+3)]dx

∴I=-log|x+2|+2log|x+3|+c
