    Hey, can someone please help me with this integration??? I have no idea how to do it, it could be integration by substitution but i don't know how to go about attempting it.

    Basically:

    e^x .dx
    -----------
    2 + e^x

    How do you go about integrating this??

    Thank you

    integrates to ln(2+e^x) + c i think

    basically you need to spot that the numerator is the differential of the denominator, and the integral of f'(x) / f(x) = ln f(x) + c
