    ln(x^2) = 2ln(x)

    no that's the derivative

    hint: let u = ln(x) and let dv = 1 dx

    try not to just give answers? we can go to wolfram for that

    @zzr0ck3r still not the final answer; but I'll take it off

    xln(x) ? I still refuse to go by the answer :D

    @Christos xlnx is not the answer. Use integration by parts

    xln(x)-1

    if you are just guessing you can go to wolframalpha and get the answer

    I am not guessing I though x has a power of 1 so -1 at the end and outside of ln whatever is inside

    u need to do integration by parts

    it is like the inverse of that, it is how we undo that rule.

    ok that "undoes" the chain rule, so now you need to learn by parts. there are both crucial to learning integration http://tutorial.math.lamar.edu/Classes/CalcII/IntegrationByParts.aspx

    e^(2*lnx) = e^ln(x^2) = x^2 so you need the integral of x^2 not ln(x^2)
