How do I deal with the coefficient in the argument of the following problem? Integrate: e^(cost)*sin(2t)dt from 0 to pi I am not sure how to do substitution with this. I made u= cost du= -sintdt and then I integrated and multiplied the end points by two to get e-e^-1. I retyped the problem in below space.

    \[\int\limits_{0}^{\pi}e ^{cost}\sin2tdt\]

    Your problem is the 2. Use the double angle trig identity: \[\sin (2x) = 2\sin x \cos x\] Then do your u substitution using u = cos x. Integrate by parts, and enjoy.

    You bet. We take precalculus for a reason, no?
