# integration by parts

 P: 42 hi, i would like help on a problem i am currently stuck on. $$\int(e^x)/(1+e^(2x))dx$$ <-- it's suppose to be $$\int$$ (e^x)/(1+e^(2x))dx using integration by parts, here's what i done: u=e^x du=e^x dv=(1+e^(2x)) v = (need to use anti-differentiation, which i dont remeber....) can i use integration by parts with this? this is cal 2.

Yes, v would be the integral of (1+e^(2x))

I would suggest using the substitution $t = e^x$ because $dt = e^xdx$ and if you look at the integral like this it becomes quite simple: $$\int \frac{e^x dx}{1 + \left( e^x \right)^2}$$

Hi,

I would not try an integration by parts. I would simply do a simple substitution u= e^x. Then you have the integral of du/(1+u^2) which is a basic one.
