This is a problem I am having trouble with: This is the formula we were taught in class to use for these types of problems: I came up with this but I am sure it's wrong.

I set u=5x du=5 dv=cos(5x) and v=1/5 sin(5x) That gave me: I tried to use -1/5x cos(5x) for the part in the integral but it is still wrong.

Thanks, for some reason I kept thinking that the derivative of 5x was 5x and not 5, lol. I came up with -1/5 cos(5x) and it was correct. Thanks.
