$\int\limits_{0}^{\frac{\pi}{2}}(\cos(x)-\cos^3(x)) dx$

$\sin(x)|_0^\frac{\pi}{2}- \int\limits_{0}^{\frac{\pi}{2}}\cos^2(x) \cos(x) dx$ $\sin(\frac{\pi}{2})-\sin(0)-\int\limits_{0}^{\frac{\pi}{2}} (1-\sin^2(x)) \cos(x) dx$ $1-0-\int\limits_{0}^{\frac{\pi}{2}}\cos(x) dx+\int\limits_{0}^{\frac{\pi}{2}}\sin^2(x) \cos(x)$
