# Evaluate the integrals in Exercises 1 to 8 using substitution.    Q7.    $\int_{-1}^1\frac{dx}{x^2 +2x + 5}$

$\int_{-1}^1\frac{dx}{x^2 +2x + 5}$
the Dr can be written as $x^2+2x+5 = (x+1)^2+2^2$
$\\\Rightarrow \int_{0}^{2}\frac{dt}{t^2+2^2}\\ =\frac{1}{2}[\tan^{-1}\frac{t}{2}]^2_0\\ =\frac{1}{2}( \pi/4)\\ =\frac{\pi}{8}$
