,Originally Posted by lingyaiI'm stuck on something simple, I'd be grateful for any help.
My text ("Forgotten Calculus", Bleau) states the following integration formula:
integral [dx / (x ln x)] = ln |ln x| + C.
In the course of a problem where I've applied the formula, I realised I can't prove it.
Here's my attempt, for what it's worth.
exponents are denoted with the "^" sign, e.g x squared = x^2;
first derivatives are denoted with the " ' " symbol, e.g. the 1st derivative of f(x) = f'(x))
f(x) = ln |ln x| + C
I want to differentiate this via the product rule, so I rewrite the function as
f(x) = (ln x^0) * (ln x) + C
you need to use the chain rule.
