Integration by Parts

Question #1 (Easy): Solving Indefinite Integral

Strategy

Integration by parts is useful when the integral contains two seemingly different function that cannot

further be simplified, so that: .

This is after the form of the Product Rule. Assign simpler variables like and let ,

then by taking derivative of , and by taking the anti-derivative of , .

Sample Question

Evaluate the integral using integration by parts.

Solution

More complex function that simplifies when its derivative is taken should be assigned to . So here,

. Then

. Taking derivative of gives , and taking the anti-

derivative of gives

.

Given the form of integration by parts:

Here:

. Since the second integral

has two functions that cannot be simplified, integration by parts needs to be taken one more time.

So again let , and

. Then, and

.

Then simplify the second integral:

.

Merge this into the first part of the answer:

Therefore, by integration by parts the integral is evaluated as:
