Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1substitution u==x+1 du=dx \[\text{}=\int\limits 5^{u^2} u \, du\] substitution again t=u^2 dt=2udu \[\frac{1}{2}\int\limits 5^t \, dt\] \[\frac{5^t}{2 \ln (5)}+c\] \[\frac{5^{(x+1)^2}}{\log (25)}+c\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Okay, so u=x+1 and we have \[ \int u\cdot 5^{u^2}du=\int u\cdot e^{u^2\log5}du=\frac{1}{2\log 5}\int 2\log5u\cdot e^{u^2\log5}du=\frac{e^{u^2\log5}}{2\log 5}=\frac{5^{(x+1)^2}}{2\log5} \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Yep, that's the exact same thing as my answer and Sam's answer, just written slightly different.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Which 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)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[ \int a^xdx=\int e^{x\log a}dx=\frac{1}{\log a}\int(\log a) e^{x\log a}dx=\frac{e^{x\log a}}{\log a}=\frac{a^x}{\log a} \\\int a^xdx=\frac{a^x}{\log a} \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2He integrates it, using the formula I derived in my last comment.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well thats where im lost. I do not know how to integrate that

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i would say that that is (ln5)t

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and obviously im wrong lol

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I just showed you how to integrate that in my comment, did you not see that? For \(a\) as any constant.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[\int a^xdx=\int e^{x\log a}dx=\frac{1}{\log a}\int(\log a) e^{x\log a}dx=\frac{e^{x\log a}}{\log a}=\frac{a^x}{\log a} \\\int a^xdx=\frac{a^x}{\log a}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0k ill write that down and try to wrap my brain around it

ChrisV

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0some things are just beyond me i guess

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2You just have to remember that \(e^{x^y}=e^{xy}\), which makes it so that \(a^x=(e^{\log a})^x=e^{x\log a}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Sorry, that first part should read \((e^x)^y=e^{xy}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0luckily i have a 99.8 average in this class so if i miss this on the final it shouldnt hurt much >.<

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Just revisit the rules for differentiating/integrating exponential and logarithmic functions. They come in handy for a lot of tricky integrals.
