Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well, if the power of sine is odd and positive , what you want to do is lop of one of the sine factor, put it to the right of the rest of the expression and convert the remaining (even) sine factors to cosines withe the Pythagorean identity , and then integrate with the substitution method where u=cos(x)
