Hi,
Q1. Evaluate the following integrals by using the given substitution.
f [{e^squareroot(x)}/{2*squareroot(x)}], substitution u = squareroot(x)
Could someone please direct the topic about the question?
thanks
I used google and found this:

Are you studying this at the moment, I would suggest asking you tutor/teacher to go over it with you.
Searching google and youtube can also be helpful:
YouTube - integration by substitution
integration by substitution - Google Search
And, if a picture helps...
If a substitution is suggested you're probably working backwards through the chain rule for differentiation, which we can draw like this...
...where straight continuous lines differentiates downwards with respect to x, and the dashed straight line with respect to the dashed balloon expression. So you can see your solution here...
Start by identifying the inner function...
Differentiate it for the sake of the chain rule...
Make sure the lower level is equal to what you want to integrate...
Then you can integrate as though the dashed balloon were a variable...
