Integration by parts......PLEASE HELP

Hello everyone,

I am revising for my final exams and have come across these questions. I wonder if anyone can help me???

Evaluate the following using integration by parts.

∫x + 1 /x - 3x + 2

∫2x +3/ (x - 2)


I would very much appreciate it if i could get help with these.

Does it specifically state integration by parts? I think using partial fractions might be easier.

I don't think even partial fractions is needed.

For the first, you can just use the power rule.  For the second, use u substitution with u = x-2.

hi all,

thanks for that, but the answer specifically asks for integration by parts. I would be grateful if someone could give me a break down of how to do it.

Thanks

That's the second problem done using integration by parts, it wasn't too bad (Add the constant at the end if you want). Trust me, you wouldn't want to use integration by parts for the first problem, it can get very messy.

I don't really know how to use the "power rule" for the first problem.

∫x + 1 /x - 3x + 2

By the power rule:



So:
