Integrate x/(x^2 + 4) dx via trig substitution and by u=x^2+4 substitution. Show that results are equal.
Via trig substitution of x=2 *tan t, I get:
1/2 * tan^1 (x/2) + c
Via u = (x^2 + 4) substitution, I get:
1/2 * ln x^2 + 4 + c
How are these equal?

sorry. posted too quickly. got the answer.
Via trig substitution answer comes to:
lnsqrt(x^2+4)/2 + c
which is the same as the other answer

s=çdx/(4+5cos x). By using tsubstitution, i.e. t=tan(x/2) we get cos x=(1t^2)/(1+t^2) and dx=2dt/(1+t^2). Substituting in s and simplifying, we get s= 2çdt/4(1+t^2)+5(1t^2)=2çdt/(9t^2). Using standard result çdx/(a^2x^2)=1/a*arctanh …
