# Math Help - Integration problem with ln (using parts)

1. ## Integration problem with ln (using parts)

I've never worked with this kind of problem before. Can anyone please provide a step-by-step answer?

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

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

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

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

so $\int (ln 5x)^{2} = x (\ln 5x)^{2} - 2x \ln 5x + 2x + C$

3. How were you able to get du?

I used the chain rule.

$\frac{du}{dx} = 2*(\ln 5x)^{1}*\frac{d}{dx} \ \ln 5x = 2(\ln 5x) * \frac{5}{x}$

so $du = 2(\ln 5x) * \frac{5}{x} \ dx$

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