    \[\int\limits_0^{2 pi} (\sqrt{1/(3 pi)}+e^{i x}\sqrt{1/(6 pi)} )^2 dx = 2/3 \]

    no no The whole thing inside the integral is squared.

    That's why I have a parentheses in the beginning it just doesn't show it that well when i used equations.

    So do I just foil it out and find the integral?

    turn e^(ix) into cos x+i sin x.

    If it really bothers you that much. I would just treat i as a constnat. Replace i with g and just integrate it like a constant.

    Then, replace the g's back with i's. Remember that i^2=-1

    If I carry out the foil I know that I can split it into three different integral with the first one being integrating 1/3pi If I do that I can simply take out 1/3pi since it's a constant and I get (1/3pi)(2pi-0)=2/3 which is the answer but how does that other part cancel out?

    Can you copy and paste your integral it into Wolfram Alpha? It will show you how to do it step-by-step

    My calc 2 teacher avoided imaginary numbers. So I'm really curious now.

    Oh I think I know what I did wrong. I was suppose to multiply the inside function with it's complex conjugate so it cancels out all imaginar values.

    No the thing is that I was suppose to multiply imaginary function with -imaginary and that just cancels out all the imaginaries.

    Have you tried foiling that giant square and breaking up the integral and placing the e^ix before the integral?

    I actually got 1 with the addition of some leftover integrals that should cancel out yet I don't really know why.
