    e^1/3 looks like a variable, but its not; its just a constant

    \[\int\limits\limits_{1}^{2} \frac{ e^\frac{ 1 }{ x } }{ -6x^2 } dx\]

    \[\huge \int\limits\limits_{1}^{2} \frac{ e^\frac{ 1 }{ x } }{ -6x^2 } dx\] is that 1/3 or 1/x? need to verify

    well, if this is going to be simple than with any luck it will come from something like:\[\Large \frac d{dx}e^{1/x}\]

    so lets start by taking the derivative of that

    do we not have to do something with the derivavtive of -6x^2?

    we should verify that if its going to be simple first and see if we can modifiy it with a useful form of "1"

    1/x = x^-1 which is then just the power rule .... which means i got a bad 2 in there :)

    x^-1 goes to -x^(-2) 1/x goes to -1/x^2 NOT -1/2x^2

    plus you need to change limits beforehand, u=1/x when x=1,u=1 when x=2, u=1/2

    if you do a usub, then you need to do hartnns route otherwise its just e^(1/x)/6 applied at 1 and 2

    3 methods that im aware of; complete usub changes limits to us partial usub where you undo the u back to x and just working thru a normal integration were nothing is changed about.... which is what i did

    did u mean -0.1782 ? and you can keep your answer as 1/6(e^(1/2)-e)

    when i worked it out it was -0.782 but if i leave it as the 1/6... it works out just the same :)
