I tried to simplify it as much as possible but then I end up with: \[\lim_{n \rightarrow \infty} \sum_{i=1}^{n} \frac{ n }{ n^2+i^2}\] I am stuck here...

I think so too but why?

Its a trick that when the power is higher in the denominator it approaches to 0

I know that trick but what about the i^2 term?

Maybe... \[\lim_{n \rightarrow \infty}\sum_{i=1}^{n}\frac{ n }{ n^{2}+i^{2} }=\lim_{n \rightarrow \infty}(\frac{ n }{ 1+n^{2} }+\frac{ n }{ 4+n^{2} }+...+\frac{ n }{ 2(n^{2}2n+2) }+\frac{ n }{ 2n^{2}2n+1 }+\frac{ 1 }{ 2n })\] All of these terms have a power 1 polynomial over a power 2 polynomial except for the last one (1/2n, which is clearly 0). So as n> Infinity, all of the terms should go to 0 as well.

Well , if you know that you will know that these terms approaches to 0
