The chain rule allows us to differentiate a wide variety of functions, but we are able to find antiderivatives for only a limited range of functions. We can sometimes use substitution to rewrite functions in a form that we can integrate. .
Example 1: ( 29 5 2 x dx + Let 2 u x = + du dx = 5 u du 6 1 6 u C + ( 29 6 2 6 x C + + The variable of integration must match the variable in the expression. Don’t forget to substitute the value for u back into the problem!

Example: (Exploration 1 in the book) 2 1 2 x x dx + One of the clues that we look for is if we can find a function and its derivative in the integrand. The derivative of is . 2 1 x + 2 x dx 1 2 u du 3 2 2 3 u C + ( 29 3 2 2 2 1 3 x C + + 2 Let 1 u x = + 2 du x dx = Note that this only worked because of the 2 x in the original.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
