Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okie dokie. Let's do this. I'll give you a hint: The thing is in the form of a trig identity.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Can you tell me the trig identities for cos^1 tan^1 and sin^1 first? After that, I think you'll know exactly what the answer is :D

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well i know its arctan its just the steps involved inbetween to find the answer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@galactic yes you have to find the antiderivative saying integral is another way of saying anti derivative

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You know your "X" is 2x. Because of that, you must chain rule it. When you do the derivative of 2x, you get 2. Pull that two out, and because it's on the bottom, it turns to 1/2. So 1/2 tan^1 (2x) + c should be the answer. But double check with other people to be safe.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If my wording was weird, I meant that normally it'd be just tan^1 if x^2 was there. But we have (2x)^2 instead of just (x)^2.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0shouldnt the 1/2 go on the top and turn into 2arctan(2x)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@uber i wanted to ask how comes we are using the trig identities. is it because it is one over the function??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@Blisk: Well I mean it's originally just (1/(2(tan^1(2x)). So you pull the 1/2 to the left.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Draw a right triangle having legs of lengths 1 and 2x. Place the unit length segment om the positive xaxis with one end at the origin O. Erect the perpendicular to the xaxis at A(1, 0) and place the other leg on that perpendicular with its lower end at (1, 0). The other end of that vertical leg is at B(1, 2x). Lrt t be angle AOB. Then tan(t) = 2x/1 = 2x, and (sec(t))^2 dt = 2 dx =>dx = (sec(t))^2/2 dt. If we substitute into the integral, we get(1/2)(sec(t))^2 dt/(1 + (tan(t))^2. and we end up integrating dt/2, so that simplifies to t/2. Getting back to original variable x, we have (1/2) Arctan(2x) + C for the final answer.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0would this work too? S = integral S1/((2x)^2+1) dx u = 2x du = 2 dx => 1/2 du = dx S(1/u^2+1)(1/2) du 1/2S(1/u^2+1) du 1/2 tan^1(u) Plug U back in 1/2 tan^1(2x) is that also correct abtre?
