I tried to use the table of integrals I have but I couldn't find something that met that scenario so I ended up substituting **u** for sin(x) as well as **du** for cos(x) and had the following before substituting u back in, I used the trig. property of cos^2(x) = 1-sin^2(x):

Integral of $\displaystyle u^3(1-u^2)du$

Then:

Integral of $\displaystyle (u^3-u^5)du$

Thanks,
