Hi David, note that in your input there is no space between x and E. If I put the space in, version 5.1 and 6 give: E^(2*x)*(-1/4 + x/2) hope this helps, Daniel David Rees wrote: > Hi, > > In preparation for a major exam tomorrow, I was just checking some of my > answers to past-papers with mathematica, I fed it this input: > > In:= > \!\(\[Integral]\((xE\^\(2 x\))\) \[DifferentialD]x\) > Out= > \!\(xE\^\(2\ x\)\/\(2\ Log[xE]\)\) > > I marked myself wrong and moved on to the next question, but I happened > accross the actual mark-scheme which said I was correct.
