    Hi James! :smile:

    (i assume you mean "lnx")

    Hint: integration by parts :wink:

    First, it is ln(x), not "In(x)"!

    As tiny-tim suggested, use integration by parts. That might seem strange since there is only one "part" but let u= ln(x) and dv= dx and every thing works out nicely.
