To integrate ( \frac{x^5 + 1}{x^3(x + 2)} ) using partial fractions:

First, express the rational function as the sum of partial fractions:

[ \frac{x^5 + 1}{x^3(x + 2)} = \frac{A}{x} + \frac{B}{x^2} + \frac{C}{x^3} + \frac{D}{x + 2} ]

To find the values of ( A ), ( B ), ( C ), and ( D ), you can multiply both sides of the equation by the denominator ( x^3(x + 2) ) to eliminate the fractions.

[ x^5 + 1 = A(x^2)(x + 2) + B(x)(x + 2) + C(x + 2) + D(x^3) ]

After expanding and equating coefficients, solve for ( A ), ( B ), ( C ), and ( D ).

Once you have found the values of ( A ), ( B ), ( C ), and ( D ), substitute them back into the partial fraction decomposition.

Then, integrate each term separately:

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

Integrate each term using the power rule for integration:

[ \int \frac{A}{x} , dx = A \ln|x| + C_1 ] [ \int \frac{B}{x^2} , dx = -\frac{B}{x} + C_2 ] [ \int \frac{C}{x^3} , dx = -\frac{C}{2x^2} + C_3 ] [ \int \frac{D}{x + 2} , dx = D \ln|x + 2| + C_4 ]

Combine the results to obtain the final integral.

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.
