    \[\lim_{x\to \infty} \frac 1 {x^2} \int \tan^{-1} t\ dt\]Is this your question?

    The integral doesn't involve x, so it can be taken out. \[\int \tan^{-1} t\ dt\times \lim_{x\to \infty} \frac 1 {x^2} \] tell me what's \[\frac 1 \infty=???\]

    nope \[\frac 1 0= \infty\] so \[\frac 1 \infty=???\]

    if you multiply 0 by tan t then what you'd get?

    what ? the answer is 0 :-) Ok it makes since if you put it that way but for me whos math retarded its difficult:-)

    You know the integral is a variable of t, if you integrate it and multiply by zero. You'd get zero. So it's not necessary to integrate. It's 0

    I doubt that this is so easy. I think you have missed some portion of the question. Maybe limits on the integral. Could you check the question again?

    its just as you put it so I think this is right but I have one more :-) its \[\int\limits_{}^{} \frac{ (x^3)\ }{(x-1)^2(x+2) }\] Can you help me with that?

    Good:) Numerator we have x^2, so add and subtract (-2x+1) Could you rewrite the integral using this?

    \[\int\limits_{}^{} \frac{ x }{-2x+1 } \] Im I on the right way? I know Im not very good at this at all :-)

    I'm sorry, i thought it's x^2 in numerator Sorry. Let me think about this
