(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Integrate:[tex]\int[/tex]2x*e^{x2}dx

2. Relevant equations

[tex]\int[/tex]e^{u}du = e^{u}

3. The attempt at a solution

I tried integration by substitution:

Letu=x^{2}

Thendu=2x*dx

So then it is:

[tex]\int[/tex]e^{u}*du

Which would give me:

e^{u}+c

So subbingxback in for^{2}u:

e^{x2}+c

I looked this type of function up online and got a lot of complicated results involving square root of pi or a log function and things referring to an error formula integral or something? ... so I was just double checking to see if this seemingly simple solution works. And maybe someone could explain what I was seeing online? Thanks
