    integration helpppppp

    <br /> <br />
\int sin{^2}(x)cos{^4}(x)<br /> <br />

    i did it all the way to

    <br /> <br />
\frac {1}{8} \int sin{^2}(2x)+sin{^2}(2x)cos(2x)<br /> <br />

    then i split it up and have no idea what happens next...

    hopefully your last line is right, i didn't check. it looks a little fishy to me.

    anyway, note that \sin^2 2x = \frac {1 - \cos 4x}2. so you can easily integrate the first part

    for the second part, use the substitution u = \sin 2x
