Assuming that:

Definite Integral of e^(-x^2) dx over [0,infinity] = sqrt(pi)/2

Solve for

Definite Integral of e^(-ax^2) dx over [-infinity,infinity]

I don't know how to approach the new "a" term. I can't use u-substitution, integration by parts, partial fractions, or trig substitution. How do I do this?
