Hi everyone. I am stuck on this problem. Evaluate the indefinite integral: ∫ (x^3+6+((5)/(x^2+1)) dx I keep getting: (1)/(4)x^(4)+6x+11arctan(x) which is wrong. Can anyone enlighten me? Thank you! Last edited by skipjack; June 23rd, 2015 at 07:16 AM.

How did you get "11"?

It's simple: first integrate ∫5/(x^2+1)dx which is 5arctanx. thus ∫x^3+6+{5/(x^2+1)= (x^4)/4+6x+5arctanx+k Last edited by skipjack; July 16th, 2015 at 08:50 AM.
