Is it $b \tan^{1}(x) + C$ for real b?

For $x$ > 0, $\displaystyle \!\int\! \frac{x  1}{x + x^2\ln(x)}\,dx = \!\int\!\left(\frac{1 + \ln(x)}{1 + x\ln(x)}  \frac{1}{x}\right)dx = \ln(1 + x\ln(x))  \ln(x) + \mbox{C}$, where $\mbox{C}$ is a constant.

I'm in. If skipjack's in, he can post the next one. If not, it's your turn, Joppy.

This isn't a good idea.

Why not?

This seems like fun. It can't be less fun than reading about yet another disproof of Cantor or RH proof.
