    These problems are so easy I hardly ever see them or get to apply there rules. So I need see if I'm doing these few problem right.
    2. Relevant equations
    1. use a/b+c 2. use a+b/c

    3. The attempt at a solution
    1. x+(x^2/2)

    (e^x^2)^2= e^2x^2

    I await your responses thanks.

    One way to learn to try some website like below:-

    then rework your solutions with the tools you have learnt.
    simplify the difficult part into simpler ones and work on it.

    Wanna try first? Thanks

    You're a bit off on 1 and 2. For 1, the trick is to add and subtract 1 from the numerator and then divide. Knowing the antiderivative of 1/(1+x^2) is helpful here.

    For 2, just divide, which is what you seemed to have done. But the antiderivative of 1/x^2 is not ln(x).

    For 3, if all you have to do is simply, then yes you should get e^(2x^2).
