To sum up, you will have to integrate one function and derivate another one.
When you have a polynomial (here, x) and an exponential, integrate the exponential and derivate the polynomial.
Thank you, that helps! The only problems is I dont know how to integrate e^ax...

By a substitution for example :
We substitute :
And the integral of is known ..
This is just a special case related to Gamma function. Have you seen what Gamma function is? Look at wiki, it's pretty clear. (Or some other place you want.)
As for the problem, make the substitution and the integral becomes (Full answer is actually )
