I was just hoping somebody could solve this for me using substitution because when I let u = tanθ, I get stuck and I can't see what else to do.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!

Thanks in advance!

P.S.

If you want to see my work, it is attached. This particular problem is the last one of the PDF and is #47.
