Find the area between y=ln(x) and the x axis on the interval [1,e^2]

I know how to integration, but is this possible? How would I integrate lnx?

Ok so use 1 and lnx.

My answer is xlnx-1

is that right? - December 11th 2008, 06:08 PMJhevon

maybe i just wrote it wrong

u=ln(x)

v'=1

u'=1/x

v= x

=

lnx*x - x(1/x)

=

(lnx) - 1

that is integrating... by parts.
