# Integrate using substitution

Integrate using U substitution only$$\int x(5x-1)^{19}$$I used $u=x^2$, and got $$\frac{x(5x-1)^{20}}{100} + C$$which happend to be wrong. Please help, I'm stuck.

The fact that you still have an integral sign in what you say is your answer suggests you should be more careful about some things. –  Michael Hardy Jun 4 '14 at 2:32

Try using the substitution $$u = 5x - 1.$$ instead

Hint. If you had a (slightly) complicated linear term and just a single variable to a high power, for example, $$\int\Bigl(\frac{4x+5}{6}\Bigr)x^{78}\,dx\ ,$$ it would be easy. (How?) So, try substituting $u=5x-1$.

No, use this: $u = 5x - 1$, and you will get

$$\int\,x(5x - 1)^{19}\,dx = \int\, \left( \dfrac{u - 1}{5} \right)u^{19}\,du$$

x = (u+1)/5 not (u-1)/5... –  KfSsOc Jun 4 '14 at 2:35
Yeah, you're right, sorry for that. –  Alexei0709 Jun 4 '14 at 2:37

Write: $x(5x-1)^{19} = \dfrac{1}{5}\cdot 5x(5x-1)^{19} = \dfrac{1}{5}\cdot ((5x-1) + 1)(5x-1)^{19} = \dfrac{1}{5}\cdot \left((5x-1)^{20} + (5x-1)^{19}\right) = \dfrac{(5x-1)^{20}}{5} + \dfrac{(5x-1)^{19}}{5}$, and you can make the substitution $u = 5x-1$, and get the anti-derivative.
