As learnt in concept

Integration by substitution -

The functions when on substitution of the variable of integration to some quantity gives any one of standard formulas.



- wherein

Since \int f(x)dx=\int f(t)dt=\int f(\theta )d\theta all variables must be converted into single variable ,\left ( t\, or\ \theta \right )



 f(x)=f(x)+f\left (\frac{1}{x} \right )

f(x)=\int_{1}^{x}\left (\frac{logt}{1+t} \right ){dt}\:;f\left (\frac{1}{x} \right )=\int_{1}^{\frac{1}{x}}\left (\frac{logt}{1+t} \right )dt

Put t=\frac{1}{z},f\left (\frac{1}{x} \right )=\int_{1}^{x}-\frac{logz}{1+\frac{1}{z}}\times \frac{-1}{z^{2}}d{z}

f\left (\frac{1}{x} \right )=\int_{1}^{x}\frac{logt}{1+t}\times \frac{1}{t}dt

f(x)+f\left (\frac{1}{x} \right )=\int_{1}^{x}\frac{logt}{1+t}\times \left (1+\frac{1}{t} \right )dt



Put x=e;we get =\frac{(loge)^{2}}{2}=\frac{1}{2}
