Integration by parts I understand, but part of the problems for this section has instructions to "First make a substitution and then use integration by parts to evaluate the integral".

I don't understand this at all... how'd we get from to ? From there, it's just integration by parts, and I understand the process. It's only the substitution part that's got me baffled.
If someone is able to explain the how and why of that, I'd be much appreciative.
