Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you want to convert the integral from integral(f(x)dx) to integral(f(u)du) if u=x^26x, then u'(x)=du/dx=2(x3). thus du=dx u'(x)=2(x3)dx thus 1/2*du=(3x)dx the original integral is integrate( (3x)(x^26x)^5 dx) =integrate( u^5 (3x)dx) =integrate ( u^5*(1/2) du) after integrating, convert back to x using the fact that u=x^26x
