Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Trig Sub! I know how to do these now! :D One moment, I'll show you steps... I need to get my lunch from the microwave oven :3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Trig sub. For this form with the 1/(x*sqrt(b^2*x^2a^a)).... let \(x = \large\frac{4}{9}\sec\theta\) \(dx = \large\frac{4}{9}\tan\theta\sec\theta\) @Beatles watch what happens when you put this in place for "x" and "dx" :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3\[\int\limits \frac{1}{x\cdot (9^2x^24^2)^{1/2}}\cdot dx\] \[\int\limits \frac{1}{x\cdot (9^2(\sec\theta)^24^2)^{1/2}}\cdot (\tan\theta\sec\theta \ \ d\theta)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Take the unit circle identity for sine and cosine, divide both side by cos^2 \[\frac{\sin^2\theta}{\cos^2\theta} + \frac{\cos^2\theta}{\cos^2\theta} = \frac{1}{\cos^2\theta}\] Can you see what happens here, @Beatles? Can you write the identity here in terms of tangentsquared now?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3\[\int\limits \frac{1}{\sec\theta \cdot (9^2(\sec\theta)^24^2)^{1/2}}\cdot (\tan\theta\sec\theta \ \ d\theta)\] @experimentX actually faster way is to use the integral tables ;)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3SOHCAHTOA: SOH : \(\sin \theta = \large \frac{opposite}{hypotenuse} \) CAH : \(\cos \theta = \large \frac{adjacent}{hypotenuse} \) TOA : \(\tan \theta = \large \frac{opposite}{adjacent} \) \(\huge \frac{1}{\cos\theta} = \sec\theta\) Therefore: \(\huge \theta = sec^{^1}(\frac{hyp}{adj})=sec^{1}(\frac{9x}{4})\) Agreed @TuringTest & @experimentX , and do you follow what I'm doing here so far @Beatles?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3\[\huge \frac{1}{9} \int\limits \frac{9}{4} d\theta = \frac{1}{\cancel{9}} \left[ \frac{\cancel{9}\theta}{4} \right] = \frac{\sec^{1}(\frac{9 x}{4})}{4}+C\]
