I was just curious to see if there was alternative methods to solving
asides from using integrations by parts since it tends to yield a very lengthy solution. Although, I believe the reduction formula for sec(x) could probably be applied in this case instead of integration by parts
but, still is there any other methods asides from these two that could be used?
(P.S. sorry if the format is not completely correct, this is the first time i have used LaTex)
The method of partial fractions looks to be a little less lengthy then using the reduction formula or at the very least it’s easier to keep track of all the terms with only the variable u (a whole bunch of factors of sec(x) can get confusing sometimes). Also thank you for the tex fix, I’m still getting use to the LaTex system.
