Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2So what are we having trouble with, power rule on that first term ya?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I just have no clue what to do.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[\Large\rm \int\limits x^{\text{#}}dx=\frac{1}{\text{#+1}}x^{\text{#+1}}\]The exponent is just a number. We just apply our power rule for integration to that first term. e is just a fancy number.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[\Large\rm \int\limits x^{3}dx=\frac{1}{4}x^{4}\]\[\Large\rm \int\limits x^e dx=\frac{1}{e+1}x^{e+1}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[\Large\rm \int\limits_0^1 x^e+e^x dx=\quad\frac{1}{e+1}x^{e+1}+e^x\quad _0^1\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2So then just deal with the limits, ya? :d

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I thought the integral of x^3 like you did above was x^4/4?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[\Large\rm \frac{x^4}{4}=\frac{1}{4}x^4\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok. Yes, I can apply the limits. I just wanted to get the core idea of the problem. Thanks.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Yah you can rewrite your x term like that if you're more comfortable with it:\[\Large\rm \frac{1}{e+1}x^{e+1}=\frac{x^{e+1}}{e+1}\]
