Homework Help: A few homework problems

  1. Jul 28, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Evaluate the integral 3x^2e^xdx

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I used integration by parts twice and came up with:

    Another question ask for a divergent series whose terms go to 0.
