Thanks Michael for the solution I got these result by integrating the function \(\frac{1}{x^2+a^2}\) by two different methodsLog in to reply

As I have mentioned below, it should be \(\frac{a}{x^2+a^2}\) and not \(\frac{1}{x^2+a^2}\)Log in to reply

Ya both are true but finally when you do integration a will Already get cancelled and will get the same resultLog in to reply

Vaidya already provided the other method, so I thought I'd include the exponential form route. You know, the brute force way.Log in to reply

Differentiate both the sides individually. Doing that shall yield \(\frac{a}{a^{2}+x^{2}}\) on both sides,

Thus, your conjecture is proved. – Shaan Vaidya · 2 years, 5 months ago

Don't forget your constant \( + C \) when integrating! – Calvin Lin Staff · 2 years, 5 months ago

Yes sir I have taken care of the constant c while integrating the function in two ways and they are equal at one point.Log in to reply

please do read my post at : https://brilliant.org/discussions/thread/math-is-getting-broken/ it is related to this question. thanks – Soham Zemse · 2 years, 3 months ago
