Not sure how to get this one going exactly, we just started getting into Integrals that really require manipulation before solving them and I believe this is definitely one of those! Thanks in advance.

This seems like a rather messy problem, are you sure you have written it correctly?
Anyway, you could rewrite the nominator as:
But I akm not sure how much of a helpt this would be.
Yeah I just went ahead and double checked, the final answer is fairly complicated, it includes a tan function as well.
Right I'll post working as I go along... Haven't checked this yet so just making it up as I go...
So out integral becomes...
