Hi. You want $$\int_0^3e^x1\,dx$$ Does that make sense? (Hint: make a sketch of $e^x$ and the line $y=1$).

What do you mean by "move the 1"? Where did he move it from? To "find the area between two curves", y= f(x), and y= g(x), between x= a and x= b, if f(x)> g(x) in that region, integrate $\displaystyle \int_a^b f(x) g(x) dx$. Here $\displaystyle f(x)= e^x$ and $\displaystyle g(x)= 1$ so the area is given by $\displaystyle \int_0^3 e^x 1 dx$ Last edited by skipjack; April 12th, 2017 at 05:28 AM.
