Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Which integrals method would you use IF YOU DID NOT KNOW WHAT DIFFERENTIATED TO GET IT (i.e. the answer) IN THE FIRST PLACE?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Do you know what 1/sinx is? and what 1/cosx is?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1since 1/sinx is the same as cscx, You should look up in your book what the integration of cscx is.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I was contemplating an integrationbyparts idea after doing a substitution.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Assume I know everything that you're doing when solving, I'll say otherwise, but this problem seems very basic, just requiring insight.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0OK! so you know that\[\int\limits_{}^{}udv =uv \int\limits_{}^{}vdu\]Now do you know how to apply it your particular question?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Your only choices for v and u are 1/sinx (to take 1st example) and 1, so I don't see the efficacy of that method...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if i might give my opinion : multiply by sin(x) / sin(x) then change sin^2(x) in the denominator to 1cos^2(x) .. can you integrate now ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@calculusfunctions if i multiply by sin(x)/sin(x) i get sin(x) / sin^2(x) this is a common method of solving such integrals (multiplying by a form of 1) then you change the sin^2(x) into 1cos^2(x)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@Coolsector I thought you meant multiply the given integrand by sin x.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No, it's not v. I said it's between u and dv.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Sorry, I always think by parts as\[\int\limits u\frac{dv}{dx}dx=uv\int\limits \frac{du}{dx}vdx\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You're going to be integrating that, so not particularly.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Or am I being too self serving, choosing the easiest option (technically) ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\int\limits \csc(x)dx=\int\limits u \frac{dv}{dx}dx=uv\int\limits \frac{du}{dx}vdx\] \[u=\csc(x), \frac{du}{dx}=\frac{\cos(x)}{\sin^2(x)}\] \[\frac{dv}{dx}=1, v=x\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1What exactly did I do incorrectly?

henpen

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\frac{d(uv)}{dx}=\frac{du}{dx}v+\frac{dv}{dx}u\] \[\frac{dv}{dx}u=\frac{d(uv)}{dx}\frac{du}{dx}v\] Integrate both sides wrt x.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Given that it's more of a fundamental concept of calculus, you could argue that it's formed from the total differential of a function of 2 variables, but that's one step away from the product rule, so it makes little difference.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\int\limits_{}^{}\frac{ 1 }{ \sin x }dx\] \[=\int\limits_{}^{}\csc xdx\] \[=\ln \left \csc x \cot x \right+C\]There you go! I was merely trying to guide you to this conclusion. But instead of allowing me to help you opposed me every step of the way. GOOD LUCK!
