Hi How exactly do I integrate t^2/(t^4+1) without using partial fractions (cause that looks soooo complicated)? PS I got that after using the t method trying to integrate 1/((cosx)^2+1)

Ummm the computer uses partial fractions but I dont think i am capable of figuring such long denominators out during the exam...is there another way?
