Integration of Exponential Functions


the derivative of ex is ex.

this means that  ex dx = ex + c

in other words the basic exponential function differentiates and integrates to itself.

two methods, by inspection or by substitution can be used for integrating more complex exponential functions. it is far quicker to learn the formula and use the inspection method.
