Problems on Techniques of Integration

Use the Integration by Parts. Set

\begin{displaymath}\left\{\begin{array}{lll}
u &=&x\\
dv &=& \cos(x)dx\;.
\end{array}\right.\end{displaymath}

Then

\begin{displaymath}\left\{\begin{array}{lll}
du &=&dx\\
v &=& \sin(x)\;.
\end{array}\right.\end{displaymath}

So

\begin{displaymath}\int x \cos(x) dx = x \sin(x) - \int sin(x) dx \end{displaymath}

or

\begin{displaymath}\int x \cos(x) dx = x \sin(x) - [-\cos(x)] + C = x \sin(x) + \cos(x) + C\;.\end{displaymath}
