If I want to evaluate: [tex] \int^1_0 \frac {dx}{(x+1)^2} [/tex] I need to use the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus right? SO wouldn't I have to solve [tex] \int^b_a(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

\frac{dx}{(x+1)^2} = \frac{(x+1)^3}{3} = \frac {8}{3} - \frac {1}{3} [/tex]? But the answer is [tex] \frac {1}{2} [/tex]
