Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[u=\sqrt{t}\] du= 1/2 t^1/2 dt du=1/2*1/sqr(t) dt But I know its wrong because I still can't cancel anything

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i think it was integral ln sqrt x dx isnt it ? or it is int ln(sqrtx)/x dx ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Why would you use a square root substitution when you can use a logarithm property?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yeah.. ln(sqrt(t)) = 1/2 ln t

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ohhhh, now I see, the square root is 1/2 as exponent. Thus, that is my (a). Thank u!!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0is the answer 1/4 * (lnx)^2+C? I think its wrong. I saw a post from another guy and I don't get what he wrote. Slaaibak, you make excellent sense. Can you post the solution steps? Id be eternally grateful...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Sure. \[\int\limits {1 \over 2} {\ln t \over t} dt\] Let's set k = ln t dk = 1/t dt so the integral becomes; \[{1 \over 2} \int\limits k dk = {1 \over 4 }k^2 + C = {1 \over 4}(\ln t)^2 + C\]
