In one of our revision papers the following problem has been given:
integrate e^x/[1+x^2] within the limits 0 to 1.
using integration by parts I tried.
I am stuck.
How to solve. Kindly help me.
with warm regards
Aranga
To Aranga, as romsek has told you this integral has no elementary anti-derivative.
Using numerical methods it has a solution, SEE HERE.
However when I saw this was on a revision paper (a review paper for speakers of American English) I wondered if perhaps there had to be some mistake?
For what course are you reviewing?
In India it is +2 means 12th grade or junior college level and it is a two mark question.
Probabily there may be some mistake in the question itself.
Revision paper means before going for the final (terminal) examination, there will be some tests conducted covering all the portions.
I saw the link sent by you. Definitely it is not to our (junior college) level.
Thanks
Aranga
