I'm kind of lost on where to go next with this integration by parts problem.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have to integrate e^xcos(x)dx.

I've gotten as far as one step of integration by parts, but I can't understand how this will help. It seems I'll just be going in circles. I have:

e^xsin(x) - int(e^xsin(x))dx. If I do a second integration by parts, will I not just get back to where I started?
