∫(from 0 to pi/4) (1 e^tanx) sec^2 x dx

i thought to use u subsitution:

u=tanx

du=secx dx

so that:

∫(from 0 to pi/4)(1+e^u) du

but then i'm confused

when doing a substitution, you need to change the bounds, besides you're on the right track, so now split that sum into two integrals, which you should know how to solve since they're immediate.
