# JEE 1981 Int Calc

So, we have this definite integral: We find the indefinite integral as follows, by first finding the antiderivatives:   After this, we take the derivative: And since we wanted the solution from the area of x = 0 to x = 1, we can ignore the second chunk, as it diverges and repeats infinitely. We only pay attention to the first two snippets, the 2x and the -x^3/3.

Hope this helped! Note by Hunter Edwards

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.

The answer to the integral given was $1+e^{-1}$ , can you help , it doesn't seems it matches with the series you gave, Btw., awesome approach!
