This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

• Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
• Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
• Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.

If, by value, you mean the area under the curve from 0 to 1, the solution would be 1/2 sqrt(π) • e • rf(1) + 1. This is simply found by removing the parentheses, taking the derivative, and then solving from there as usual.

Oh can you explain more.

Yes - I'll post a new discussion called JEE 1981 Int Calc with the information enclosed. I need my LaTeX!

@Pi Han Goh , thank you , its a jee 1981 question but didn't knew the maths involved was so higher.

Then you can only evaluate it using numerical methods, like trapezoidal rule or Simpson's rule.
