Toolbox:
  • Where there are two functions u and v,and if they are of the form $\int u dv,$ then by the method of integration by parts we can solve them as,$\int udv=uv-\int vdu.$
  • (ii)$\int\sin xdx=-\cos x+c.$
  • $(iii)\int \cos xdx=\sin x+c.$
Given $I=\int x\sin xdx.$
 
It is very clean that the given problem is of the form $\int udv.$
 
We can follow the method of substitution to solve this
 
$\int u dv=uv-\int vdu.$
 
Let u=x.
 
On differentiating we get
 
du=dx.
 
Let du=dx.
 
Let $dv=\sin xdx.$
 
On substituting for u and dv we get
 
$\int x\sin xdx=[x.(-\cos x)]-\int-\cos xdx.$
 
On integrating we get
 
$\;\;\;=-x\cos x+\sin x+c.$
 
Hence $\int x\sin xdx=-x\cos x+\sin x+c.$
