## Homework Statement

Evaluate the two following integrals:
$$\int$$ xcos5x dx and $$\int$$ ln(2x+1) dx

## The Attempt at a Solution

ok, for the first one, the answer is 1/5 x sin5x + 1/25cos5x+C

i get this answer up until the 1/5x and the 1/25....i have no idea where there coming from. in my solutions manual they come up when u take the integral of cos5x....its 1/5sin5x....where is this 1.5 coming from?

secondly the answer to the second one is: 1/2(2x+1)ln(2x+1)-x+C

again i get this exact answer except for the 1/2. i know its coming from when u take the integral of 1/(2x+1).....but i dont get where the 1/2 comes from in front of the natural log

help would be greatly appreciated...i have a midterm wednesday!

Hi banfill_89! It's the chain rule (backwards!) …

differentiate sin5x and you get an extra 5 because of the chain rule … same with ln(2x+1), you get an extra 2 …

so when you integrate, you have to cancel them out with a 1/5 or 1/2. ohhhhhhh. makes alot of sense....thanks alot
