To evaluate ∫₁² e^(1-x)dx, we can first integrate the function e^(1-x) with respect to x. The integral of e^(1-x)dx is -e^(1-x), according to the rules of integration. Then, we evaluate this antiderivative from the lower limit of integration, which is 1, to the upper limit of integration, which is 2.

Therefore, ∫₁² e^(1-x)dx = [-e^(1-x)] evaluated from 1 to 2 = [-e^(1-2)] - [-e^(1-1)] = [-e^0] - [-e^0] = [-1] - [-1] = -1 + 1 = 0

So, the value of the given definite integral is 0.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
