Trig substitution Please HELP !

  1. Jul 30, 2009 #1
    I really needed some help with these trig substitution problems. Please write the u and du values for each. I'd really really appreciate it !

    1) Integrate [e^x/(e^x +1)] dx

    2) Integrate [1/(e^2x +1)] dx

    3) Integrate [(1+x)/(1+x^2)] dx

    Thank you Again !!!

    I will give you some hints.

    d/dx (ex)=ex

    Can you think of a substitution for the first one?

    (am)n= amn

    what can you do with the second one now?

    For the third, try making two integrals from it.
