Thank you

Area=Constant*INT e^-5x dx from 0 to infinity

1.0=constant* (-1/6 e^-6x ) over the limits

1.0= constant*1/6(e^0 -e^-inf)

6= constant.

**Tammy**, Friday, September 16, 2011 at 1:51pmHi Bob,

Thank you for responding so quickly. And sorry to hear about your allergies. They are not fun! The exact question was : normalize the following functions in the interval 0 to infinity: a) e^-5x. The answer my instructor has is 10^1/2 e ^-5x as the answer but I don't know how he got to that answer. Any ideas?
