The following integral \[ \mathbb{A} = \displaystyle \int_{2}^{3} \dfrac{(x+3)^2+2^2}{(x+2)^2+3^2} \partial x \] has a closed-form value of \[ a + \log \left (\dfrac{b}{c} \right ) - \dfrac{\tan^{-1} \left ( \frac{d}{e} \right )}{f} \] Evaluate \( a+b+c+d+e+f \), respecting the coprime fractions.

This problem was vaguely inspired by Anastasiya Romanova's integrals. Keep it up!

Don't learn from me, I'm still learning too. \(\quad\ddot\smile\)

Anyway, we can use general expression

\[\mathbb{A}=\int_q^p\frac{(x+p)^2+q^2}{(x+q)^2+p^2}\,dx\]

Making substitution \(y=x-q\), we get \[\begin{align} \mathbb{A}&=\int_0^{p-q}\frac{(y+p+q)^2+q^2}{y^2+p^2}\,dy\\ &=\int_0^{p-q}\left[\frac{y^2+2(p+q)y+(p+q)^2+q^2}{y^2+p^2}\right]\,dy\\ &=\int_0^{p-q}\left[\frac{y^2}{y^2+p^2}+\frac{2(p+q)y}{y^2+p^2}+\frac{(p+q)^2+q^2}{y^2+p^2}\right]\,dy\\ &=\int_0^{p-q}\left[1-\frac{p^2}{y^2+p^2}+\frac{2(p+q)y}{y^2+p^2}+\frac{(p+q)^2+q^2}{y^2+p^2}\right]\,dy\\ &=\int_0^{p-q}\left[1+\frac{2(p+q)y}{y^2+p^2}+\frac{(p+q)^2+q^2-p^2}{y^2+p^2}\right]\,dy\\ &=\int_0^{p-q}\left[1+\underbrace{\frac{2(p+q)y}{y^2+p^2}}_{\large\color{red}{\text{set}\,u=y^2+p^2}}+\underbrace{\frac{2(pq+q^2)}{y^2+p^2}}_{\large\color{blue}{\text{set}\,y=p\tan\theta}}\right]\,dy\\ \end{align}\] The rest is trivial. – Anastasiya Romanova · 2 years, 1 month ago
