    I don't understand why we don't have to include the constant when integrating by parts?

    Can someone enlighten me?

    When you use the formula you're integrating twice so in reality you end up with your integral + c1 + c2. These constants are combined in + c. The c is c1 + c2, so you can just add it in at the end.
