Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you have to use identities to solve this \[\int\limits_{}^{}3 \sin^2 x \cos x\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[3\int\limits_{}^{}\sin^2 x \cos xdx\] \[3\int\limits_{}^{}(1\cos^{2}(x)) \cos xdx\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2No, sin^2(x)=u 1/2 du=cosxdx 3/2udu becomes your new integral.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Why not u = sinx > du = cosxdx ??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It's crystal clear about the relation between sinx and cosxdx :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1remember for the future \[\cos^2(x) = \frac{1 + \cos(2x)}{2}\] so we have, \[3(\sin(x) + c  \int\limits_{}^{}\frac{1+\cos(2x)}{2}dx)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You can solve it my way too which is good practice for when you get integrals with trig functions to high powers

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and sinx= t ,u whatever, thats the easiest thing which you can do..as i pointed out in the very beginning ..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1cos^3 x will still involve substitution ..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I'm not arguing that substitution will be involved in my solution but it still works for solving this integral it is just the long way
