$\displaystyle \frac{1}{5}\ln|\sin5x|+\frac{1}{5}\ln|\csc5x-\cot5x|$

please explain.

Hello Paul! Notice you can factor the $1/5$, yielding $$\frac{1}{5} \left[ \ln |\sin 5x | + \ln |\csc 5x - \cot 5x| \right],$$ and from here use that $\ln a + \ln b = \ln (ab)$. Consequently

$$\frac{1}{5} \left[ \ln |\sin 5x | + \ln |\csc 5x - \cot 5x| \right] = \frac{1}{5} \left[ \ln |\sin (5x) \cdot (\csc (5x) - \cot (5x) )| \right] = \frac{1}{5} \left[ \ln |1 - \cos (5x)| \right].$$

Cheers.

In the last step we can remove modulo sign as it positiveHello, paulmdrdo!
