Hi, I've been having trouble solving the following problem, please help me.

Question:

(integration from 1 to 4) e^(x^(1/2))dx

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

So far, i have done the following:

u = e^(x^(1/2))

du = (1/2)(x^(-1/2))e^(x^(1/2))dx

dv = dx

v = x

so after applying the integration by parts formula, I got...

xe^(x^(1/2)) - (integration sign)x(1/2)(x^(-1/2))e^(x^(1/2))

dx

The integration of the second part looks wrong because it seems that I missed a step somewhere and made it more complex. Thank you for helping me.
