I'm not sure how to integrate this function. I tried converting the numerator into a(sinx+cosx)+b(cosx-sinx), but I couldn't find anything that worked. It didn't really simplify the integrand.

Hello, quanta123!

I found a way, but it's pretty elaborate.

I'm sure there is a simpler way.

I used these identities:

I think there's a simplest way...

and for the last one integral, using will be using simple algebra with a rectangle triangle with sides - Oct 2nd 2017, 07:21 AMcocoboyRe: Integrate (sinx-5cosx)/(sinx+cosx)
Hello could you elaborate on how you went from your second step to the third one please. And thank you
