Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1just to let you know uzma, if you eliminate the _{}{} part after "int" the limits of the integral will go away like this \[\int\limits\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Lao, to remember the integrals of trig, you need to know the derivatives of them very well

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1for this one, d/dx(tan(x)) = sec^2(x) was the one tat uzma referred to

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1another one you will see a lot is things like \[\int\limits \csc(x)\cot(x) dx\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if you try to do usubstitution or integration by parts, it will be a tough one, but if you remember d/dx csc(x) = csc(x)cot(x) then we know that the integral that I showed you will have an ans csc(x) + C
