# Evaluate integral^{fraction {1}{5} }_{ - fraction {1}{5} }e^{5x} dx.

## Question:

Evaluate {eq}\displaystyle \int^{\frac {1}{5} }_{ - \frac {1}{5} }e^{5x} \ dx. {/eq}

## Definite Integral in Calculus:

The definite integral is used to compute the exact area. We are given an exponential function and we need to find out the definite integral.

To solve this problem, we'll use the common integral: {eq}\displaystyle \int e^{ax} \ dx = \dfrac{e^{ax}}{a}+C {/eq}.

Next, Plug in the bounds and simplify the answer.
