I don't know how to use the codes, so you will have to bear with me a little

Integrate

(cot x)^2 dx

Everything I tried just doesn't work. I am not sure what trig identity to use to get to the answer.

Thanks for the help

Use $\displaystyle 1- csc^{2}x = cot^{2}x $

OR you can use the suggestion above. - Jul 28th 2009, 03:05 PMshoff14
Thanks, I was thinking to much
