    integral of complex functions

    hi,
    i hope, i posted thread to right place.

    1) proove the result;

    \int_{-\infty}^{\infty} \frac{xsinx}{x^2+9}dx=\frac{\pi}{e^3}

    2) Find the answer;

    \int_{0}^{2\pi}\frac {cos^2\theta}{2+sin\theta}d\theta

    For the first question, i tried x^2+9=(x-3i)(x+3i) substitution. then my integral became like this;

    \int_{-\infty}^{\infty} \frac{xsinx}{x^2+9}dx=\int_{C_1}\frac{\frac{xsinx}  {x-3i}}{x+3i}+\int_{C_2}\frac{\frac{xsinx}{x+3i}}{x-3i} where c_1 and c_2 are paths containing -3i and 3i respectively. After this, applied Cauchy's Integral Therom but got zero.

    For the second question, i tried to substitute thetas with z=|z|e^{i\theta} \to e^{i\theta}=\frac{z}{|z|} and cos\theta=\frac{e^{i\theta}-e^{-i\theta}}{2} but again got nothing. also since our sin\theta=-2 for z_0 and cos^2\theta=1-sin^2\theta, can we say answer is -6i\pi by Cauchy's Integral Theorem?

    Edit: today, there was office hour and i asked to teacher. then he said "i didnt explained the solution of these yet. normally you can solve it from CPV."
    so, srry for the question. if i still cant solve after learning cpv then i'm gonna ask again.
