In solving the integration of: (sin x) / (1+ cos x)  [0, pi/2] where u= (1+ cos x) and du = -sin x dx, the solution converted the interval of [0, pi/2] to [2, 1].       I don't understand why this was necessary since the order of the intervals seem reversed. Could you give me a step by step explanation why this was necessary?
