2. Instead of using substitution, write 1/e^y as e^-y, and then follow from there. Hope this helps

The integration of e^-y isn't ln(e^y). In this case, y isn't a constant; treat it like an x (rather than like a 1). So the integration of e^-y gives -e^-y (the y part never changes, but the minus is brought down). I'm not very good at explaining things but I hope that makes sense. Knowing that you should be able to finish the question.

That should ring alarm bells since your answer for should differentiate to , but obviously which differentiates to just 1.
