Trying to find ∫x*arctan(x)dx, but I can't figure out what do to after:
In google type:
When you see list of results click on:
Wolfram Alpha:Computational Knowledge Engine
When page be open in rectangle type:
and click option =
After few secons you will see result.
Then click option : Show steps
great, I can find the steps and i have the answer already. i just don't understand the step to be made after (1/2)x^2*arctan(x)-1/2∫x^2/(x^2+1) dx
To solve that last integral, you have to use the substitution rule.
u= x^2 + 1
Therefore the integral becomes:
Factor out the 2
Which is equal to
Since u= x^2 + 1
I figured it out
@Ethan, you can't substitute because it is x^2 over(x^2+1)
x^2/(x^2+1) = 1 - 1/(x^2+1)
You can easily integrate that.
Sorry, I misread that as 2x instead of x^2.
