Homework Help: Integration by Parts problem

  1. Jul 20, 2010 #1
    [tex]\[\int e^x(x+1)\ln x \ dx \][/tex]

    Not sure how to approach this. Would I have to multiply it out first?

    For starters, I would split it into two integrals and see if integration by parts works on each one.

    [tex]\[\int e^x(x+1)\ln x dx = \int xe^x~lnx~dx + \int e^x~lnx~dx[/tex]
