Separate the single fraction into two fractions. The objective is to remove variable x from the numerator (See explanation at the bottom of post).

Simplify and integrate the expression.

Unlike differentiation, there is no quotient rule for integration, therefore we have to either remove the x variable from the numerator or denominator.

In the solution above we separate the fraction so that the x varable in the numerator is removes. Once it is two separate fraction we integrate the expression. Do note that for the fraction on the right
