Evaluate the integrals

a)y=

b)y=

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I've tried using the Reciprocal Rule and substitution of each ln function with u to get a workable result, but havent come anywhere near a recognizable solution. The answers stated in the book are as follows:

a) 1/ln4

b) (ln2)^2

[STRIKE]This tells me that, somehowamust end up looking like this:

ln 1 - ln 4

andbmust look like:

ln2 * ln2[/STRIKE]

These would seem counter intuitive to my understanding of how these kinds of problems are solved and Im at a loss of how to fix it.
