    Hi friend, you have a formula for the problem, why don't you apply? let u =e^x ---> du = e^x dx. you have the new numerator is du, in denominator, you have u^2 +1 . and then change the interval : when x =0 , u =1, when x =1, u =e, so your new one is integral from 1 to e of du/u^2 + 1 = arctan (u) from 0 to 1 = arctan1 - arctan 0 . arctan 1 = pi/4 and arctan 0 = 0 . so the final result is pi/4. is it familiar with you? Hope this help
