    substitution u==x+1 du=dx \[\text{}=\int\limits 5^{u^2} u \, du\] substitution again t=u^2 dt=2udu \[\frac{1}{2}\int\limits 5^t \, dt\] \[\frac{5^t}{2 \ln (5)}+c\] \[\frac{5^{(x+1)^2}}{\log (25)}+c\]

    Okay, so u=x+1 and we have \[ \int u\cdot 5^{u^2}du=\int u\cdot e^{u^2\log5}du=\frac{1}{2\log 5}\int 2\log5u\cdot e^{u^2\log5}du=\frac{e^{u^2\log5}}{2\log 5}=\frac{5^{(x+1)^2}}{2\log5} \]

    Yep, that's the exact same thing as my answer and Sam's answer, just written slightly different.

    Which part of the method Sam and I used did you not follow? (Sam's is a bit easier to follow because he does substitution twice and I only used it once)

    I just showed you how to integrate that in my comment, did you not see that? For \(a\) as any constant.

    You just have to remember that \(e^{x^y}=e^{xy}\), which makes it so that \(a^x=(e^{\log a})^x=e^{x\log a}\)

    Sorry, that first part should read \((e^x)^y=e^{xy}\)

    Just revisit the rules for differentiating/integrating exponential and logarithmic functions. They come in handy for a lot of tricky integrals.
