Essentially thats it, I have to estimate with the trapezium rule (I can do this)

then confirm with the integration by parts of

xe^xdx

but I just keep going round in circles.

Help!

Thanks

thanks, I was putting v=x and du/dx as e^x and kept coming back with the original integration problem as the vdu/dx part.
