I'm very new for calculus.
please solve this problem. thank you very much.
Anyway i'm going to suggest something radical and an easy way out.
But i'm not sure if you are allowed to leave your answers in terms of non elementary fuctions.
Divide everything by cos^7 x
use a substitution u = tanx
du = sec^2 x = ( u^2 - 1)
you can do this
Partial fractions would be appropriate.
If you get something like
You may have to use the maclaurin series or do some more algrabra. I didn't try it so i'm not sure what you would end up with.
Good luck though. The algebra seems disgusting.
I popped it into an online integrator and it doesn't look pretty.
