## The Attempt at a Solution

I've tried substitutions and they seem to lead to nowhere. I need help getting started on this one. Thanks

Oooppss. I got it now, I had to double substitute.

Did you try u^2=log(x)+1? So log(x)=u^2-1.

But...why?

u=lnx, du=1/x

thus sqrt(u)du/u= u^(-1/2)du...easy power rule, and that's only one sub...

Edit: Thank you DrummingAtom for showing me an error, the likes I have made many a time.

But where does the 1 go? The answer would then be 2sqrt(ln x) which doesn't equal the original function.

Well you see, that would just be me neglecting the one to make it an easy question. xD

My bad.
