Hello.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Can someone please explain why I have to transform an integral of a differential function into the form Integral ( lnx 1/x dx ) for example, for Integral ( lnx ).

It seems to only be done with transcendental functions and not the algebraic ones... ie. Integral ( x^2 ) != Integral ( x^2 2x dx)

Whereas, Integral (ln x) == Integral ( ln x 1/x dx)
