# Strange Integral- Does it even exist?

I was watching DonnyLee's videos on youtube and I noticed something strange. I think he picked u=x and du=dx, and if I'm right (?) he picked v= $$\int x dy/dx$$ but does that even equal to y? But that can't be right because the right side kept the original expression. Some help might clear up the fuzziness

I believe:

u = y. du = dy/dx * dx.
dv = d/dx* x * dx. v = x.
