    so define the fundamental thrm of calculus; then see how that applies :)

    expand it and you will get 4e^-x - 1

    Yes, what dumbcow said. Then you can take the integral of each part.

    FTC simply says it CAN be done; then you apply the techniques :)

    the equation editor seems to have distorted the equation ; can you verify it?

    FTC says the definite integral = F(1) - F(-1) but you have to find F(x) by taking anti-derivative of f(x)

    If you integrate 4e^-x, you would get -4e^-x. Then, integrate 1 and you get x So then you have -4e^-x - x evaluated from -1 to 1

    if you sub in your values, you get (-4e^-1 - 1)-(-4e^-1+1)

    So is the answer just (-2) by itself? Or is there anything on the opposite side of the equal sign?

    the integral of the original problem = -2, so "-2" is the final answer
