    Trying to integrate x raised to e power

    I can't seem to figure this out. I did not learn properties of logs in college algebra very well, and I think that might be part of why I'm stumped.

    Question is: find the anti-derivitive of x^2e + e^x dx. I can integrate e^x dx by simply using rules of integration, but I'm stuck on x^2e dx.

    Help please??

    Dont for get e is a constant

    So the power rule tells us that

    \int x^{n}dx=\frac{x^{n+1}}{n+1}

    so

    \int x^{2e}dx=...

    e is just a constant. Raise the power and divide by that power.

    Edit: Guess i'll cut out the answer, then.
