    Integration

    \int \frac{e^x}{1+e^{2x}}

    Could someone explain how to solve this?

    Make the sub u=e^{x}, \;\ du=e^{x}dx

    After making the subs, the resulting integral should look familiar and a cakewalk from there on out.

    \int \frac{e^x}{1+e^{2x}}\,dx (note the dx - it's important)

    Try letting u = e^x

    I=tan^{-1}(e^x)

    Is that correct?
