    this doesnt seem like a u-sub problem @dpaInc looks like that basic application of general power formula

    not necessarily but i like to do it so I don't miss the derivative of 2-3t...

    me too...that formula is too confusing :/ kinda like doing limits to find derivative

    and @Romero , yes there's more than one way to skin this cat.. for the first one, the integrand can be rewritten as secxtanx

    from my caculation first one is 1/cosx+c second one is -(2-3t)^7/21 +c is that right

    i think there should be a negative on #1

    looks like a nice simple substitution to me... but I'm still waiting for the rooster eggs to roll off the roof

    Second one is right. You just wrote it weird so it looks like the ^7 is getting divided by 21

    why #1 is negative?

    derivative of cos will give you a negative so when you do the chain rule you will need to cancel that negative with another one.

    these are too basic...perhaps u need to revisit the integration methods... 1/cosx and ((2-3t)^7)/(-3*7)

    \[\int\limits_{}^{}\frac{\sin(x)}{(\cos(x))^2} dx ...u=\cos(x) =>du=-\sin(x) dx ......\int\limits_{}^{}\frac{-du}{u^2}=-\int\limits_{}^{}u^{-2} du\] \[\int\limits_{}^{}(2-3t)^6 dt....u=2-3t=> du=-3 dt .....\int\limits_{}^{}u^6 \frac{du}{-3}\]

    #2 \[\int\limits (2-3 t)^6 \, dt\] u==2-3t, du=-3dt \[-\frac{1}{3}\int\limits u^6 \, du\] \[-\frac{u^7}{21}+c\] \[-\frac{(2-3 t)^7}{21} +c\]
