Can anyone show me how this step is done?
integral of (6-4ln(3-x))^2 dx
The next step says to apply linearity:
4 integral sign (2ln(3-x) -3)^2 dx
I don't understand how to apply linearity and could not find anything on the internet that explained it.

For the first one, I would first expand the square as a polynomial, giving 3 integrals, one of a contant, one of ln(u) and one of ln 2 (u) with u = 3 - x and so du = -dx. Then each of the three integrals is relatively standard, well, more or less, with
integral( ln(x) dx ) = x(ln(x) -1) + C
integral( ln 2 (x) dx ) = x ( ln 2 (x) - 2 ln(x) + 2 ) + C
I don't understand the second case, since, in the reals, a square is always positive, and thus, the sign is always +1 ( or locally 0). So, as I see it, it is about 4 integral(dx) == 4x + C. (Sure, initially, x has to be smaller than 3, in the Reals, because the log of a negative argument is out of domain).

Thank you for your help. I appreciate it.
