 75 A strange integral: $\int_{-\infty}^{+\infty} {dx \over 1 + \left(x + \tan x\right)^2} = \pi.$ 24 Does a set $A \subseteq [0,1]$ exist such that $A$ is homeomorphic to $[0,1] \setminus A$? 4 I get two different answers on simple equation. What am I doing wrong? 4 Real matrix with the property that every nonzero vector in $\mathbb{R}^n$ is an eigenvector of $A$. [duplicate]
