1) Let I=∫(x+1)dx/√(1-x^2)=xdx/√(1-x^2)+dx/√(1-x^2)+C.

Let u^2=1-x^2, 2udu/dx=-2x, so udu=-xdx; let x=sin(p), so dx=cos(p)dp, dp=dx/√(1-x^2).


2) x^2-2x+5 can be written: x^2-2x+1+4=(x-1)^2+2^2.

Let x-1=2tanp, then (x-1)^2+4=4(tanp)^2+4=4(secp)^2; dx=2(secp)^2dp.

Also tanp=(x-1)/2 and p=arctan((x-1)/2).
