    you mean, (arctan(x/2) - 1)/(2(x^2 +4))

    Just remember, this is only complex calculus using simple rules.

    um yes arctan but the -1 is part of the x^(2)+4

    \((\tan \frac x 2)^{-1}-\frac{1}{2(x^2+4)}\)

    firt put tann x/2 as cot x/2 and diffetentiate it u wil get -1/2cosec^2x/2

    becoz tan x/2 is to the power of -1 hence after taking its reciprocal u get cot x/2

    now differentiate -1/2(x^2+4) you will get -xlog (x^2+4)

    hence your total answer is -1/2cosec^2x/2-xlog (x^2+4)
