Hello, Befordxide!

I have a back-door approach . . .

Quote:

In the denominator we have: .

Multiply top and bottom by : .

Let be an acute angle in a right triangle with: .

. . Then: . . . . Note that: .

. . Hence: .

Then we have: .

The denominator becomes: .

The integral becomes: .

Can you finish it now?
