    You want help to Integrate it or just saying why can't you remember the table formula and you want someone to give it to you?

    [tex]\int x^2\ln xdx[/tex]

    Integrate by Parts: [tex]I=uv-\int vdu[/tex]

    [tex]u=\ln x[/tex]
    [tex]du=\frac{dx}{x}[/tex]

    [tex]dV=x^2dx[/tex]
    [tex]V=\frac 1 3 x^3[/tex]

    Are you answering my question, or just asking me to restate the original.

    Smoking funny cigarets? Drinking too much? Misplaced capitals syndrome?
