How integrate y = x/(x^4+1)?
1 Answer | add yours
You need to use substitution technique, hence, you should come up with the following substitution, such that:
`x^2 = t => 2xdx = dt => xdx = (dt)/2`
Replacing the variable, yields:
`int x/(x^4+1)dx = int ((dt)/2)/(t^2 + 1)`
`int ((dt)/2)/(t^2 + 1) = (1/2)tan^(-1) t + c`
Replacing back `x^2` for `t` yields:
`int x/(x^4+1)dx = (1/2)tan^(-1) x^2 + c`
Hence, evaluating the indefinite integral of the given function, using substitution technique, yields `int x/(x^4+1)dx = (1/2)tan^(-1) x^2 + c.`
