How would you do this
integral of tan^4(x)sec^4(x)dx
I know this breakups into integral of ((sec^2(x))^2 + integral of ((tan^2(x))^2
I am not so sure where to go from here.
Thanks.

Why wouldnt you do it my way..by breaking both tan^4(x) and sec^4(x)? Would that just make things harder?..so a good strategy is to break one piece of it up? Thank you!

Because that's the way I'd do the integral and, honestly, I don't understand how . It just doesn't look right to me, though I admit I haven't spent any time to disprove it.

Edit: The two expressions and aren't the same. Where did you get this from?

OOPS i meant integral of (sec^2(x) - 1)^2 + integral of (tan^2(x) + 1)^2
Thanks again..I was able to get the right answer now ;-)
