This is the general form of the integral:

Here is another method, without using integration by parts:

parts is too much work ...

add up the terms of both equations ...

integrate the RHS - August 12th 2009, 03:50 PMSoroban
Hello, Jones!

skeeter is right . . . "by parts" is a lot of work.

Here it is . . . in case you*ever*get that desperate.

Thanks,

How do you know when to use integration by parts and when not to use it?

I thought you always had to use it if you had a product of two functions =/ - August 13th 2009, 01:18 AMProve It
You use integration by parts if two situations hold...

1. One of the functions in the product should be easy to differentiate and one should be easy to integrate.

2. By integrating and differentiating the correct functions, the new integral is reduced to something easier to integrate.
