Many problem Solvers of Integral Calculus often use a long method to solve integration problems whose integrand is a Natural Exponential Function.This article will show a short method to evaluate such an integral.

## Things You Will Need

Paper, pencil, and a creative mind.

## Step 3

Let us look at the Integral whose Integrand is a Natural Exponential Function. The derivative of the Exponent, which is supposed to Multiply the Natural Exponential Function, differs by a Constant Multiple. Please click on the Image for a better understanding.

## Step 4

We will Multiply that Constant by the Reciprocal of the Constant of the Derivative of the Exponent, and write the Answer/Solution to the Integral as the Natural Exponential Function multiplied by the product of the constant plus a constant C.

The first is U-Substitution done mentally, and the other is writing out the steps in full detail. In most assesment tests and entrance exams, the calculus problems will allow mental U-substitutions to be applied. This article has provided an example of one of those problems.

## Tips & Warnings

Do not assume that this method will work for all Integration problems of this form. It is the reader's responsibility to understand when the mental U-Substitution method can be applied.
