# why I can not get a numerical answer by show(integral(x^x,x,1,2))

show(integral(x^x,x,1,2))

You can use `numerical_integral`

instead of `integral`

```
numerical_integral(x^x,1,2)
```

or explicitly order a numerical answer

```
integral(x^x,x,1,2).n()
```

Integral not being computed correctly

Maxima crashes on relatively simple integral

ValueError: Computation failed since Maxima requested additional constraints

How can I speed up symbolic function evaluation?

How to do numerical integral where the answer still have variables in it?

Double Integration not working
