Sub. on the third integral , we have

For the second integral , use integration by parts ,

Therefore ,

I observe that:

So we have:

Where for the last integral we use the substitution to get:

Letting in the remaining integral we have:

Thus

good! pretty different solutions from the one i have:

consider (1); now from put and the integral becomes (2).

on the original integral put then

from (1) and (2) the latter equals

and the original integral equals

What about letting right away. The integral becomes

or

or

Integrating gives

Then backsubstitute noting that
