# Thread: Quick question involving integration by parts

1. ## Quick question involving integration by parts

Here is a solution guide to a problem;

$\int \frac {3}{2x-3} + \frac {2}{(2x-3)^5} dx$
$3*\frac{1}{2} \int \frac {1}{u}du + 2*\frac{1}{2} \int \frac{1}{u^5} du" alt="3*\frac{1}{2} \int \frac {1}{u}du + 2*\frac{1}{2} \int \frac{1}{u^5} du" />

The red is what I don't understand. They drew out the numerator because it was a k value, but where did the one half come from?

Has anyone ever really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like?

supposing $u = 2x-3$

$du = 2 dx$

$\therefore dx = \frac{du}{2}$

when you replace $2x-3$ with u, replace $dx$ with $\frac{1}{2} du$. Thats how the $\frac{1}{2}$ comes before the integral
