9-56.
1. Examine the integrals below. Consider the multiple tools available for integrating and use the best strategy. After evaluating each integral, write a short description of your method. Homework Help ✎

Use integration by parts.

Let f = ln(x) and dg = x3dx.

Let f = 2x − 1 and dg = exdx.

Use long division to rewrite the integrand.

Use partial fraction decomposition to rewrite the integrand in the form:

$\frac{a}{x}+\frac{bx+c}{x^2+1}$

$=\frac{1}{x}+\frac{-x+1}{x^2+1}=\frac{1}{x}-\frac{x}{x^2+1}+\frac{1}{x^2+1}$
