How do you evaluate this integral?
$\int{1^2x*5^(2x^(2))}$

thanks

Did you mean:
$\int (1^{2x})(5^{2x^{2}}) dx$

Have you viewed what you've posted .....?

The current formatting of your question makes it unintelligible.

Sorry, couldn't figure out how to format it.

it's actually

int ((1^2*(x))*5^(2x^(2)))

$\int (1^{2}x)(5^{2x^{2}}) dx$

I'm still as much in the dark as ever. Nevertheless, taking it on face value as $\int (1^{2}x)(5^{2x^{2}}) dx$ you should first realise that this is the same as $\int (x) (5^{2x^{2}}) dx$. Now make the substitution $u = 2x^2$ and note that $5^u = e^{(\ln 5) u}$.
