the primitive of v(t) will give the displacement equation x(t) so find the indefinite integral of \[\int\limits \ln(1 + t) dt\] you also know that when t = 0, x(t) = 2 so the particle starts 2 units to the right of the origin. you will need to use these to evaluate the constant in the indefinite integral. Lastly, when you have your equation, substitute t = 5 and evaluate to find the postiion from the origin

well its a standard integral \[\int\limits \ln(ax + b) dx = \frac{(ax + b)}{a} \ln(ax + b)  x + c\]

oh that is where i get confused. lol. because i did: y = lnu u = 1+t dy/du = ulnu du/dx = 1 dy/dx = dy/du * du/dx and then i add that to the constant 2.

you need to use integration by parts so f = ln(u) dg = du df = 1/u du g = u so then you have \[uln(u)  \int\limits 1 du\] which gives the integral of uln(u)  u and when u = t + 1 you get  t + (t + 1)(ln (t + 1)  1) or (t + 1)log(t +1)  1
