Calculus/Calculus 2 integral

Question
I really have no clue where to get started with this integral. Any help would be appreciated.  
Evaluate the indefinite integral.   

integrate of ln(x^2+10x+24)dx

Answer
With the ln() function, it is known that ln(ab) = ln(a) + ln(b).
Since x+10x+24 factors into (x+4)(x+6), this means
ln(x+10x+24) = ln[(x+4)(x+6)] = ln(x+4) + ln(x+6).

It is known that integral os ∫ln(x+4) + ln(x+6)dx =
∫ln(x+4)dx + ∫(ln(x+6)dx = 1/(x+4) + 1/(x+6) + C.

Any kind of calculus question you want. I also have answered some questions in Physics (mass, momentum, falling bodies), Chemistry (charge, reactions, symbols, molecules), and Biology (reproduction, insusion of chemicals into bloodstream).

Experience

Experience in the area: I have tutored students in all areas of mathematics since 1980. Education/Credentials: BSand MS in Mathematics from Oregon State University, where I completed sophomore course in Physics and Chemistry. I received both degrees with high honors. Awards and Honors: I have passed Actuarial tests 100, 110, and 135.

Publications
Maybe not a publication, but I have respond to well oveer 8,500 questions on the PC. Well over 2,000 of them have been in calculus.
