Its
$\int x e^{x^2} dx$
or
$\int x (e^x)^2 dx$
or
$\int x e^{x2} dx$
or
$\int x e^x \, 2 \, dx$

It is this one...Sorry I know i need to use substitution but cant figure out the rest.

4. Just in case a picture helps...

... where

... is the chain rule. Straight continuous lines differentiate downwards (integrate up) with respect to x, and the straight dashed line similarly but with respect to the dashed balloon expression (the inner function of the composite which is subject to the chain rule).

The general drift is...

And the rest...
