integral -oo, oo [(2x)/(x^2+1)^2] dx

(a) state why the integral is improper or involves improper integral
*infinite limit of integration
(b) determine whether the integral converges or diverges
converges?
(c) evaluate the integral if it converges
I know f(x)=arctan->f'(x)=1/(1+x^2)
I'm not sure what I do with the 2x in the numerator and the squared demoninator.

    The question is: Evaluate the improper integral for a>0. The integral is: the integral from 0 to infinity, of e^(-y/a)dy Can anyone help me solve this? When I try I get 'a', which apparently is incorrect. Thank you!

    Evaluate the improper integral or state that it diverges: integral from 6 to infinity (1/t^2-5t)dt. I need help on solving this and what does it mean by converges and diverges?

    how do you start this problem: integral of xe^(-2x) There are two ways: 1) Integration by parts. 2) Differentiation w.r.t. a suitably chosen parameter. Lets do 1) first. This is the "standard method", but it is often more tedious

    how would you do this improper integral 1/(x-1) from 0 to 2 this is improper at one, so I split it up into two integrals ln(x-1) from 0-1 and ln(x-1) from 1-2 I then did for the first one the (lim t->1(-) of ln(t-1))-(ln(0-1)) and
