Do you know anything shorter?

nope ... haven't found any other.

just noted how similar these two integrals look like \[ \int \frac{\sin x}{\sin x + \cos x} \; dx \\ \int \frac{\cos x}{\sin x + \cos x} \; dx \]

Note one more way. Although the same really, dw:1347566670806:dw

well ... pretty clever manipulation on the last problem

yeah ... that is also very nice problem. i wish this one had too http://math.stackexchange.com/questions/198083/integratesin3xsin3xcos3x/198122#198122

interesting technique ...

there is one http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=integrate%20%201/3%2bsin%28x%29/%283%28sin%28x%29%20%2b%20cos%28x%29%29%29%20%202cos%282x%29/%283%2a%282%20%20sin%282x%29%29%29 not nice and intuitive though

this is just a back hack

find the answer first ... differentiate the answer to get the get the middle portion.

How do you find the answer first?

experimentXBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
make it easy as much a possible ... that's how i approach most of the problems. i to honest ... i can't work without answer.

Okay. Back hack, eh. Hmmmm.

Weierstrass substitution gives solution of any type ... but that is the last resort. very ugly method.

well ... good night!!

siddhantsharanBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
Yeah. Goodnight. I'll think about this and get back to you tommorow. :)

siddhantsharanBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
Hold onn. What about the current solution to that, It does work quite easily or not?

To the sin^3x/sin^3x + cos^3x

there isn't nice manipulation like sin(x)/sin(x)+cos(x) for this one.
