1. ## cot integral

Hi,

Can someone help me with the integral Cot/sq. 1+2sinx, please?

I tried doing u substitution

I set u=1+sinx
du=2cosx

Will this work or should I try integration by parts?

I also know that cot=1/tan

Thank you

you cannot have cot by itself, you have to have cot(something). please type your question properly

3. Sorry

Cotx/sq. 1+2sinx

4. $\displaystyle \displaystyle\int\frac{\cot x}{(1+2\sin x)^2}dx=\int\frac{\cos x}{\sin x(1+2\sin x)^2}dx$
Substitute $\displaystyle \sin x=u$.

5. I'm trying to integrate "Cotx/sq. 1+2sinx"

Thank you

and by that i suppose you mean $\displaystyle \frac {\cot x}{\sqrt{1 + 2sin(x)}}$ ?

parentheses are important too. change cot(x) into cos(x)/sin(x), then make the substitution $\displaystyle u = \sqrt {1 + 2 \sin x}$

7. Would the final answer be 1/2ln sq. 1+2sinx+c

I did:

(1/2) int du/sq. u dx=
1/2 int. 1/sq. u dx
1/2 int. ln|sq. u|+c=
1/2 ln sq. 1+2sinx+c

Thank you

1/2 ln sq. 1+2sinx+c

Thank you
please read my instructions in my last post, and use parentheses to clarify what you mean

Does this make sense?

Hey, it's the same question (asked by the same person). I saw that thread but i didn't remember it, since i never posted in it. i made the same substitution as you did
