Hello,
I'm having trouble on a fairly basic integration by parts question:
The Integral of: 27x^2/cos(3x)
I remember going over something about using U substitution on cos(3x) but I can't remember how to do it.
Any help would be appreciated.

Ah, sorry I typed the wrong integral X_X. Anyways I was able to get the answer and I've run into a new problem.
Integral of: x^5cos(x^3)
I guess that I could set x^5 = u and do it 5 times but it seems like there should be a much easier way.
Again, sorry about the typo and thanks for any help.
Have you gone to this site to see what the antiderivative might be?

Actually I have the answer to the integral, I'm just not sure how to solve it.
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Try u=x^3.
Then it will break into .
And the remaining will get eliminated when you derivate u.
-----------------------------------------------
Unfortunately I still have no idea what to do.
So x^3 would be u, du = 3x^2dx
I"m not quite sure how that cancels the x^2 or whatever. Anyway someone can show how to work the problem? As I said, I already have the answer I just need to see how to solve it.
Thanks.
$\displaystyle \int x^5 \cos (x^3) dx = \int x^2 x^3 \cos (x^3) dx \ \ \ \ \ [ u = x^3 \longrightarrow du = 3x^2dx ]$
$\displaystyle = \int \frac{u x^2 cos(u)}{3x^2} du = \tfrac{1}{3} \int u \underbrace{cos(u)}_{\tfrac{d}{du} \sin (u)} du = \tfrac{1}{3} ( u \sin (u) - \int \sin u du )$
$\displaystyle = \tfrac{1}{3} [ u \sin (u) + cos (u)] = \tfrac{1}{3} [ x^3 \sin (x^3) + cos (x^3)]$
(I hope I didn't just do your homework for you.)
You really need to understand what I did there. It's for you're own benefit.
Thanks Trevor, I got it. I was able to get most of the problem but for some reason when I substituted for U i didn't change the x^3 in the cos to U and was wondering how I was supposed to integrate that.
Also don't worry about doing my homework, these problems were all done in a group a week ago, I'm just going back and figuring out how to do them X_X.
Thanks.
