Going further with integration by parts. Don't know whether to proceed further or not

Hey guys,

Need you push to proceed further with integration by parts:


setting u=3*x2-------du=6*x dx
dv= e3*xdx--- v= 1/3* e3*x

∫ e3*x*3*x2*ydx=y*(3*x2* 1/3* e3*x-∫6*x*1/3* e3*xdx)
=y*(3*x2* 1/3* e3*x-6/3*∫x*e3*xdx)
Solving further about x*e3*x
∫ e3*x*3*x2*ydx=y*(3*x2* 1/3* e3*x-6/3*(x*1/3*e3*x-∫1/3e3*x)

How can we go further with solution as exp(3*x) repeats all the time?

You've done all the hard work. ∫e3xdx is easy, using a simple substitution.

If you have [itex]\int x^n f(x)dx[/itex], where "f" is easy to integrate any number of times (and the "nth" integral of [itex]e^{3x}[/itex] is [itex](1/3^n)e^{3x}[/itex]), just continue taking [itex]u= x^n[/itex], [itex]dv= f(x)dx[/itex]. Everytime du will have x to a lower power until, eventually, it is just [itex]x^0= 1[/itex].
