A particle moving on a straight line is described by [tex]\psi(x)=\frac{1+ix}{1+ix^2}[/tex].(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Where is the particle likely to be found?

I took the derivative of probability density with respect to x and equated it to 0. I got my answer to be x=0.643,-0.643,1.554i and -1.554i.

Please tell me whether I am right or wrong or are there any other methods to solve this problem or not?
