Quantum Physics

The ground state wavefunction for a particle in a shallow potential well in 1 dimension is of the form: Ae^(−|x|/2d). Given that the particle must be found somewhere in the range x∈[−∞,∞], the born rule then places a constraint on the modulus of A. Assuming that A is real and positive, what is the value of A?
