# Solve:$\int {\dfrac{1}{x-x^3}}dx$

##### SOLUTION
$I = \int \dfrac{1}{x(1-x^{2})}dx = \int \dfrac{1}{x(1-x)(1+x)}dx$

using parctial fraction, we have
$I = \int \dfrac{A}{x}+\dfrac{B}{1-x} +\dfrac{C}{1+x}$

on comparing numerator, we have

In $A(1-x)(1+x)+Bx(1+x)+C(1-x)x = 1$

put $x =1, B = 1/2 \ put \ x = 0, A = 1$

put $x = -1, C = -1/2$

$\Rightarrow I = \int (\dfrac{1}{x}+\dfrac{1}{2(1-x)}-\dfrac{1}{2(1+x)})dx$

$= lnx -\dfrac{1}{2}ln(1-x)+\dfrac{1}{2}ln(1+x)$

$= ln(\dfrac{x\sqrt{1+x}}{\sqrt{1-x}})$

Its FREE, you're just one step away
