# 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()
```

Unable to evaluate integral of x*x/(exp(x)+1)

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

Replace a variable with a function

How can I detect failure of analytical integration?

integral() failing with "segmentation fault"

Integral not being computed correctly
