**How to derive the rule for Integration by Parts from the Product Rule for differentiation?**

The Product Rule states that if*f* and *g* are differentiable functions, then
*u* = *f*(*x*) then *du *= *f* ‘(*x*) *dx*

Let*v* = *g*(*x*) then *dv* = *g*‘(*x*) *dx*

The formula for Integration by Parts is then

**Example: **

Evaluate

** Solution: **

Let *u* = *x* then *du* = *dx*

Let *dv* = sin *x**dx* then *v* = –cos *x*

Using the Integration by Parts formula

** Example: **

Evaluate

** Solution: **

** Example: **

Evaluate

Let *u* = *x*^{2} then *du = *2*x dx*

Let *dv* = *e ^{x}*

Using the Integration by Parts formula

We use integration by parts a second time to evaluate

Let *u = x* the *du = dx*

Let *dv* = *e ^{x} dx* then

Substituting into equation 1, we get
