how would i integrate $xe^{x}$

i can guess by differentiating things, to but im bit confused.

integration by parts

let u = x and dv = e^x dx

can you continue?

as well as (in the words of Krizalid) you can contemplate the derivative of xe^x and then integrate both sides of the differential equation and solve for the required integral

3. See my signature, there's a good tutorial to integrate by parts faster.
