To integrate (\frac{{3x^2 - 1}}{{(x^2 + 2)(x - 3)}}) using partial fractions:

- Factor the denominator (x^2 + 2) as irreducible quadratic, and (x - 3) as linear.
- Write the fraction in the form of partial fractions: (\frac{{3x^2 - 1}}{{(x^2 + 2)(x - 3)}} = \frac{{Ax + B}}{{x^2 + 2}} + \frac{{C}}{{x - 3}}).
- Clear the denominators and simplify to solve for the unknown coefficients A, B, and C.
- Once you have found A, B, and C, integrate each term separately.
- Finally, sum up the integrals of each partial fraction.

Following these steps:

- The factorization of the denominator gives (x^2 + 2 = (x + i\sqrt{2})(x - i\sqrt{2})).
- The partial fraction decomposition becomes: (\frac{{3x^2 - 1}}{{(x + i\sqrt{2})(x - i\sqrt{2})(x - 3)}} = \frac{{Ax + B}}{{x + i\sqrt{2}}} + \frac{{Cx + D}}{{x - i\sqrt{2}}} + \frac{{E}}{{x - 3}}).
- Clear the denominators and equate coefficients to find A, B, C, D, and E.
- After solving for A, B, C, D, and E, integrate each partial fraction term.
- Finally, sum up the integrals to get the result.

This process can be somewhat complex due to the presence of complex roots. However, once you've found the constants, integrating each term individually becomes straightforward.

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.
