Hey guys, have another one I hope you can help me with trying to solve this by substitution. If I let u = tan x , than du = sec^2 x dx . Would it be correct that then dx = du / sec^2 x And now at this point I'm lost
Here's something that will help you out in the future:
If we have an integral in the form of , and
n is odd :
m is odd :
- split off a factor of
- apply the identity
- apply the substitution
m is even and n is even :
- split off a factor of
- apply the identity
- apply the substitution
- use and to lower the powers of cosine and sine.

n is even :
m is odd :
- split off a factor of
- apply the identity
- apply the substitution
m is even and n is odd :
- split off a factor of
- apply the identity
- apply the substitution
- use to get the equation ins terms of secant. Then apply reduction formulas.
