AQA C4, integration help please (from the chapter further calculus).

  • 0 votes

The question is integrate x/(1+x)^2, My answer is -1/(1-x)-ln(1-x), but the answer is 1/(1-x)+ln(1-x) and I don't know where I have gone wrong. I used partial fractions to solve this question....

Any help would be appreciated

Thank you :)

Please ignore this question...Even though i checked, i made a mistake typing out the question [should be x/(1-x)^2]!!! and i figured out I didn't multiply be the differential of the bracket, so my answers had the wrong sign!
