Evaluate the integral:

Background Information:  
Through partial fraction decomposition, we can write
for some constants


Step 1:  
We need to use partial fraction decomposition for this integral.
To start, we let
Multiplying both sides of the last equation by  
we get
Step 2:  
If we let    the last equation becomes    So,  
If we let    then we get    Thus,  
Finally, if we let    we get   
Plugging in    and    we get  
So, in summation, we have
Step 3:  
Now, we have


For the remaining integrals, we use  -substitution.
For the first integral, we substitute  
For the second integral, the substitution is  
Then, we integrate to get
