let $\displaystyle u = (\ln 5x)^{2} $ and $\displaystyle dv = dx$

then $\displaystyle du = 2 \ln (5x)*\frac{5}{x} \ dx $ and $\displaystyle v =x $

$\displaystyle \int (ln 5x)^{2} = x (\ln 5x)^{2} - 10 \int \ln 5x \ dx $

Integrating by parts again, you can show that $\displaystyle \int \ln 5x = \frac{1}{5}x \ln 5x -\frac{1}{5}x +C $

so $\displaystyle \int (ln 5x)^{2} = x (\ln 5x)^{2} - 2x \ln 5x + 2x + C $ - Mar 11th 2010, 10:13 AMArchduke01
How were you able to get du?

If $\displaystyle \frac {d}{dx} ln 5x = 5/x$ then how did you get $\displaystyle (1/5)x$ in the 2nd integration by parts?
