1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

I'm working on ym Math assignment, and we are currently doing Integration by parts. I haven't had too much trouble except with the last 3. Ill only post the first of those 3 for now.

I need to find [tex]\int[/tex]arctan(1/x)dx

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I picked u to be arctan(1/x) and dv to be 1.

so far this is what i have:

=xarctan(1/x) - [tex]\int[/tex] (-x)/(x[tex]^{2}[/tex] +1) dx

Have I done it right so far? Any tips on how to procede?
