can anyone help me with this, it's been bothering me for the last few days

$\displaystyle \int\sqrt{1+\sin^2 x}dx$

i've tried doing substitution but with little success, and i don't think partial integration does the trick

I assumed that you probably incorrectly obtained this integral from the real problem. Clearly that's not the case. Does your book expect you to solve it using elliptic functions? If not, then yes, it's probably either missing something or there's a typographical error.
