\begin{equation} \int_{-1}^{1} e^{u+1} \end{equation}

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I really seem to struggle with any problems with e in them. I think I may have missed some of the basic rules or something, but I can't seem to find what I missed.

My guess on this one would be to rewrite the equation into:

\begin{equation}\int_{-1}^{1} e^{u} e^{1}\end{equation}

I know that the integral of [itex]e^{u}[/itex] is [itex]e^{u}[/itex] but I don't know how to integrate [itex]e^{1}[/itex]. I'm not even sure if I rewrote the problem correctly. I know that the answer is [itex]e^{2}-1[/itex] but I can't seem to figure out how to get there.

I thought maybe [itex]e^{1}[/itex] would just integrate like a normal function giving [itex]1/2e^{2}[/itex] but I couldn't get it to work out with that either.

I'm totally lost with these e functions. What am I doing wrong?
