How would I go about evaluating something like this?

$$$\lim_{n\to+\infty} n \int_0^{+\infty} \dfrac{\sin\left(\dfrac{x}{n}\right)}{x(1+x^2)}\, dx$$$

Let I(n) be the definite integral.

$$\frac{I(n)}{\frac{1}{n}}$$

Note that you can use L'hopitals rule here, and that you may interchange the operation of differentiation with respect to "n" and integration with respect to "x".

Another way might be to write:
$$\sin(\frac{x}{n})=\frac{x}{n}++++$$

Inserting, and simplifying, the limit will be the same as the above.

$$\frac{ n \sin\left(\frac{x}{n}\right)}{x(1+x^2)} \rightarrow \frac{1}{1+x^2}$$ uniformly, so we can bring everything inside the integral.
