    I think you have to use Trig sub

    this is just a test idk if it will work \[\int sec^2 x* sec^2 x*\sqrt{tanx} dx\]

    \[cos^2 x + sin^2 x= 1\] \[1+tan^2 x=sec^2 x\]

    not trig sub, u-sub

    yeah then let u = tanx; du = (secx)^2

    you could use trig subs

    trig sub will work with any trig integral... it's just a pain for something that can be done easier anyways \[\int sec^2 x *(tan^{3/2} x+ \sqrt{tan^{1/2}x})\]

    let \[u=tanx\] \[du=sec^2 x\] \[\int u^{3/2}du+\int u^{1/2}du\]

    how does tan^2 (x) * tan^(1/2) x = tan^(3/2) (x)?
