For study for the review, we recieved a couple questions. However, I got stuck on this. if you can help then itd be real awesome... The integral of x / (1 + x^4), from 1 to infinity... find convergance...

The integral of x / (1 + x^4), from 1 to infinity... find convergance... $\displaystyle \int \limits_1^{\infty} \frac{x}{x^4+1} dx = \frac{1}{2} \int \limits_1^{\infty} \frac{(x^2)'}{(x^2)^2+1}dx = \frac{1}{2} \int \limits_1^{\infty} \frac{d\mu }{\mu^2 +1} = \frac{\pi}{4}$ Not only did we show it converges we showed what the value is.
