    In the numerator there is derivative of the denominator so we can apply ln( ) law

    if you multiply the top by 3, you get exactly the derivative of the bottom so put a ⅓ out front , and multiply the top by 3 you now have \[ \frac{1}{3} \int \frac{du}{u} = \frac{1}{3}\ln(u) \] notice we can write the above as \[ \frac{1}{3} \int \frac{du}{u} = \int \frac{du}{3u} \] it looks like they want to see 3(x^3+ 6x^2 +3x+8) or 3x^3 +18x^2 + 9x + 24 in the "box"
