∫eˣ cot²(eˣ+1) dx. So far, I’ve put u = eˣ + 1 and du = eˣdx and substituted them in, so now I have ∫cot²u du. I’m not sure what to do next, since I can’t figure out the antiderivative for this!

    \[\cot^2(u) = \csc^2(u)-1\] Both of which are easily integrable.

    the antiderivative of csc^2 u -1 = -cot u - u?

    Remember to plug u back in to the final answer and add the constant.
