Determine whether the integral is convergent or divergent.If it is convergent, evaluate it.
form infinity to 0
x/(x^4+25)dx

To evaluate
∫x/(x^4+25) dx
let
z^2 = x
2z dz = dx
now you have
1/2 ∫1/(z^2+25) dz
That is just a standard integral, giving
(1/2)(1/5)arctan(z/5)
evaluate at the limits and you get π/20

I need to find if the summation of (n^4)/(n^10 + 1) is convergent or divergent from n=1 to infinity. I tried splitting it up into two sums, one being 1/n^6, which would be convergent because p=6>1, and then the other being n^4, …
