Hello everyone, This is my first time in this forum, but like other forums online I am sure there is an amazing community of people out there willing to help others; at least that's my personal experience; I know it will be similar in this forum. I am starting Integration by parts in my Calculus 2 class and it's something that I am still working on to grasp (it's tricky). I have this exercise and I cannot move forward (it might seem basic I know). $\displaystyle \int \frac{xe^{2x}}{(1+2x)^{2}}dx$ I chose: $\displaystyle u=e^{2x}$ $\displaystyle du=2e^{2x}dx$ $\displaystyle v=\frac{x}{(1+2x)^{2}}$ $\displaystyle dv=?$ But I cannot get the integral of dv to find v. Any ideas? Thanks a lot. Last edited by skipjack; September 2nd, 2014 at 02:49 PM.

Before trying the integration by parts I would try substituting $\displaystyle u = 1 + 2x$. It simplifies the integral

Thanks for the replay Benit, I tried substituting $\displaystyle u=1+2x$ first in the original integral but the result is not that easy to work with ( or I am not seeing it) $\displaystyle \frac{1}{4}\int\frac{e^{u1}\left ( u1 \right )}{u^{2}}du$ Last edited by fredlo2010; September 1st, 2014 at 08:08 AM.

$\displaystyle u=xe^{2x},\,du=e^{2x}(1+2x)\,dx$ $\displaystyle dv=(1+2x)^{2}\,dx,\,v=\frac12(1+2x)^{1}$

Thanks a lot for the reply. That did the trick. This is the final answer. I am not sure if it's correct to post all the solution? Can you guide me. In other forums we do to help other users in case they face a similar problem (programming stuff) Also I do not see a "Solved" flag. My guess is that it's not used. $\displaystyle \frac{e^{2x}}{8x+4}+C$ Thanks to all of you for the help. Last edited by skipjack; September 2nd, 2014 at 02:52 PM.

There's no harm in posting the solution, though we do encourage others to show some effort towards solving the problem (as you have).

$\displaystyle \int\frac{u1}{u^2}du \ = \ \lnu \ + \ \frac{1}{u} \ + \ C$ Last edited by skipjack; September 2nd, 2014 at 02:57 PM. Reason: ln > \ln
