Mathematics

Evaluate the following definite integral:
$$\displaystyle \int_{-1}^{1}\dfrac {1}{x^2 +2x+5}dx$$


SOLUTION
Consider, $$I=\displaystyle \int_{-1}^1\dfrac {1}{x^2+2x+5}dx$$

$$ =\displaystyle \int_{-1}^1\dfrac {1}{(x+1)^2 +2^2}dx$$

$$=\dfrac {1}{2}\left [\tan^{-1} \dfrac {x+1}{2}\right]_{1-}^1$$

$$ =\dfrac {1}{2}(\tan^{-1} 1-\tan^{-1}0)$$

$$=\dfrac{1}{2} \left(\dfrac {\pi}{4}-0\right)$$

$$=\dfrac {\pi}{8}$$
