1.

For this question, I was wondering if dividing the x through all of the terms would be the best way to start solving, which gives:

and then taking the antiderivative, evaluating from 1 to e etc...

2.

Also need help starting out this one. For this question does the derivative of need to first be taken? I do not know if it would be permissible to pull the d/dx out into the front of the integral, or even if that would help at all.

Additional thanks in advance.
