In the solutions manual to my calculus text I don't understand how they are simplifying the following:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex]x\ln(2x+1)-x+\frac 1 2 \ln(2x+1)+C[/tex]

to...

[tex]\frac 1 2 (2x+1)\ln(2x+1) -x +C[/tex]

If someone could explain to me how they are simplifying this it would be appreciated.
