    Yes, it is x\ln x - x.

    You can find it using integration by parts.

    Yup. choose, as JB says, parts, using Ln(x) = Ln(x) x (1) - derive the Log part, integrate 1 for the other

    I'm gonna take a guess and say you've got a C3 exam 2morrow.
    You should avoid integrating Ln X, that's why in integration by parts you make u=Ln x no matter what that way you only have to differentiate it and not integrate it.
    This method works because i tried it with a question and came out with the right answer.

    It could be a misspelling of "illiterately".

    On a more serious note - the posters who gave the answer are correct, but you should try it yourself. Integrate by parts, using the trick u = \ln x, \frac{dv}{dx} = 1. It may seem weird, but it works.
