    Find the Anti-derivative (NEED HELP ASAP)

    Find an antiderivative.

    How do you integrate ( 1 / [(cos ^ 2) t]) ??

    The
    antiderivative of Cos(t) = sine(t), then I am lost. Help please!

    Recall that: \frac{1}{\cos x} = \sec x

    So you have: \int p(t) dt = \int \left(\cos t + \sec^2 t\right) dt

    Do you remember anything whose derivative is equal to \sec^2 t ?
