Hi, here's my problem(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Use the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus to evaluate the definite integral.

from the int. of -1 to 1, with the function being 5/x^2+1

= 5 int. 1/x^2+1

= 5 int. tan^(-1)(x)

= 5 x tan^-1(x)

Plug in 1 and -1...subtract...= 450, except it's wrong.

I've gotten as far as 5 int. tan^-1(x), and I get 450 once I plug in the limits, Am I missing anything?
