    In exercises 48 - 50, derive the following formulas using the technique of integration by parts. Assume that \(n\) is a positive integer. These formulas are called reduction formulas because the exponent in the \(x\) term has been reduced by one in each case. The second integral is simpler than the original integral.

    Exercise \(\PageIndex{51}\)

    Integrate \(\displaystyle ∫2x\sqrt{2x−3}\,dx\) using two methods:
