Do you mean . If you don't want to use LaTex, it is standard to use "^" to indicate powers.

Are you sure you have copied the problem correctly? Strictly speaking acurvedoes not have an anti-derivative nor is there an "area" assigned to an anti-derivative.

My first thought was that you were asked to find the area between the curve corresponding and y= 0, between and , byfindingthe anti-derivative of that function.

However, the "passing through the point (1, e)" makes me think you are first to find the anti-derivative of that function, using the condition that y(1)= e to determine the constant of integration, then integrating again to find the area.

You should be able to do that using the fact that the anti-derivative of is [tex]\frac{1}{n+1}x^{n+1}
