    For the first one, let u=x^2. After turning the resultant product into a sum the rest follows.

    For the second one, let u=x\ln x. The remaining integral can be killed with a trig. or hyperbolic substitution.

    I got the first one, but I'm still having some trouble with the second one. I'm not really understanding it.

    Hello, FalconPUNCH!!

    Krizalid is absolutely correct . . .


    \int(1+\ln x)\sqrt{1+(x\ln x)^2}\,dx

    Let 1 + \ln x)\,dx" alt="u \:=\:x\ln x\quad\Rightarrow\quad du \:=\:\left(x\!\cdot\!\frac{1}{x} + \ln x\right)\,dx\:=\1 + \ln x)\,dx" />


    We have: . \int\underbrace{\sqrt{1 + (x\ln x)^2}}\underbrace{(1 + \ln x)dx}
    . . . . . . . . . . . . . \downarrow\qquad\qquad\swarrow
    . . . . . . . . = \;\int \sqrt{1 + u^2}\;du

    Now let u \:= \:\tan\theta\quad\Rightarrow\quad du \:=\:\sec^2\!\theta\,d\theta \quad\hdots\quad \text{etc.}
