# Integration by parts

How would you go about doing this:

$$\int64x^2cos(4x)dx$$

The question specifically asks to integrate it by parts, so I integrated it that way a couple of times and came out with some long mess of sines and cosines, but it's not the right answer.

Thanks.

The approach is correct. The first thing I'd do is a substitution 4x->u just so that the numbers disappear. Then just integrate by parts twice. I suggest you try and post your attempt, so that we can see if it's just a simple algebraic mistake. Like I said, it's going in the right direction.

Oops, I almost forgot about this. I actually was able to figure it out. Thanks though. :)
