Help with integration

  1. Sep 21, 2008 #1
    It's been awhile since I've used integration, I guess I am a bit rusty with the calculus. I need to integrate:

    e^-x / 1-e^-1 dx

    1 / 1-e^-1 is pulled out of the integral and the integral of e^-x = -e^-x. So:

    e^-x / 1-e^-1 dx = -e^-x / 1-e^-1

    Could someone tell me if that is correct?

    Looks good to me. Remember, you could always check your answer by taking the derivative of the antiderivative. :wink:
