    Intergration of trig function (1-sin^2x)

    Hey all,
    I was wondering if you could help me?
    How do you intergrate the function (1-sin^2x)?
    I'm really lost with the whole intergration of cos^2x and sin^2x
    Thanks

    \displaystyle\int(1-\sin^2x)dx=\int\cos^2xdx=\int\frac{1+\cos 2x}{2}dx
    Now, continue from here.
