We have to find the integral of g(x) = (x-2)/(x^2-4).

g(x) = (x-2)/(x^2-4)

=> g(x) = (x-2)/(x - 2)(x + 2)

=> g(x) = 1/ (x + 2)

Int[g(x)] = Int[ 1/ (x+ 2)]

=> ln (x + 2) + C

**The required integral is ln (x + 2) + C**

Given that g(x) = (x-2)/(x^2-4)

We need to find the integral of g(x).

First we will simplify.

g(x) = (x-2)/(x-2)(x+2) = 1/(x+2)

==> g(x) = (x+2)^-1

Now we will integrate.

==> Intg g(x) dx = Int (x+2)^-1 dx

We will assume that u= x+2 ==> du = dx

==> Int g(x) dx = Int 1/u du = ln u + c

Now we will substitute back u= x+2

**==> Int g(x) = ln (x+2) + C**
