To integrate ( \frac{3 - x}{(x^2 + 3)(x + 3)} ) using partial fractions, first, we need to decompose the fraction into partial fractions. We start by expressing the fraction as:

[ \frac{3 - x}{(x^2 + 3)(x + 3)} = \frac{A}{x + 3} + \frac{Bx + C}{x^2 + 3} ]

Then, we find the values of ( A ), ( B ), and ( C ) by equating numerators:

[ 3 - x = A(x^2 + 3) + (Bx + C)(x + 3) ]

After expanding and collecting like terms, we can solve for ( A ), ( B ), and ( C ).

Next, we integrate each term of the partial fractions separately.

[ \int \frac{A}{x + 3} , dx + \int \frac{Bx + C}{x^2 + 3} , dx ]

For the first term, the integral is straightforward:

[ \int \frac{A}{x + 3} , dx = A \ln|x + 3| + C_1 ]

For the second term, we can use trigonometric substitution or complete the square to integrate.

Once we've integrated both terms, we combine the results to get the final answer.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
