    basically you need to use this : \(\huge \int \limits _a^b f(x)dx=\int \limits_a^b f(a+b-x)dx\)

    \(\huge I= \int _0^a \frac{f(x)}{f(x-a)+f(x)} \\\huge I =\int _0^a \frac{f(a-x)}{f(-x)+f(a-x)} \)

    if f(x)=f(-x) then you get your result after adding the above 2 equations....

    oh sry its a-x the original quest\[\huge \int_0^a\frac{f(x)}{f(x)+f(a-x)}dx\]

    then using that property will directly give you answer.... and ofcourse you have to add 2 equations u got....

    using\[\frac{ a}{a+b}=-\frac{ b }{ a+b }+1\] so \[\int\limits_0^a \frac{ f(x) }{ f(x)+f(a-x) }=\int\limits_0^a \frac{ -f(a-x) }{ f(x)+f(x-a)}+1\]

    u=a-x du=-dx \[I=(-)\int_a^0\color{red}{\frac{f(u)}{f(u)+f(a-u)}}du+\int_0^a1\] red same as I so \[I_0^a+I_a^0=a\]

    in RHS, let a+b-x = t => -dx = dt limits also change to x=b to a just substitute and you'll get the LHS
