    i believe the first step would be to differentiate =_= this sounds complicated...

    is it y' =0 when x=0

    \[\frac{d(x*\tan^{-1}x)}{dx} = \frac{x}{1 + x^2} + \tan^{-1}x\]

    i wonder how we can solve for x \[\large \frac{x}{1+ x^2} + \tan^{-1} x = 0\]

    yup it is when x = 0 and no other solution

    take tan(inverse)x on other side and draw graphs of both arctan(x) and -x/(1+x^2) you will find their graphs cutting each other at x = 0 only

    \[x + \tan^{-1}x^2 + \tan^{-1}x = 0\] \[x^2.\tan^{-1}x + x + \tan^{-1}x = 0\] \[D = b^2 - 4ac\] \[D = 1 - 4\tan^{-2}x\] \[x = \frac{-1 \pm \sqrt{1-4\tan^{-2}x}}{2\tan^{-1}x}\]

    sorry i was writing too much you have the derivative right? it is \[\frac{x}{x^2+1}+\tan^{-1}(x)\] and this is clearly zero if \(x=0\) by inspection

    not much to that. now to show that this is the only solution, note that the derivative of this is \[\frac{2}{(x^2+1)^2}\] and this is always positive, which means your function is strictly increasing so there is only on solution

    it is clear that for all \(x\) the function \(\frac{2}{(x+1)^2}>0\) and so it is increasing for all \(x\) if you have one zero, there cannot be another one
