    My work: \[3\int\limits_{}^{}\sin^2(x)\cos^4(t)dt\] \[3\int\limits_{}^{}\sin^2(t)\cos^2(t)\cos^2(t)dt\] \[3\int\limits_{}^{}\frac{ 1 }{ 2 }(1-\cos(2t))(\frac{ 1 }{ 2 }(1+\cos(2t)))^2dt\] \[\frac{ 3 }{ 8 }\int\limits_{}^{}(1-\cos(2t))((1+\cos(2t)))^2dx\] \[\frac{ -3 }{ 8 }\int\limits_{}^{}((\cos^3(2t)+\cos^2(2t)+\cos(2t)+1) dt\] \[\frac{ -3 }{ 8 }\int\limits_{}^{}((cos^2(2t))(cos(2t))+\cos^2(2t)+\cos(2t)+1))dt\] \[\frac{ -3 }{ 8 }\int\limits_{}^{}(\cos^3(2t)+\cos^2(2t)+\cos(2t)+1)dt\]

    The 4th step should be a dt.

    look in the back of your book at the "reduction" formula i think you can make a u sub earlier on though. maybe i am wrong

    \[\frac{ -3 }{ 8 }\int\limits\limits_{}^{}(\cos^2(2t)\cos(2t)+\cos^2(2t)+\cos(2t)+1)dt\]

    i would start with \[\int\cos^4(x)dx-\int\cos^6(x)dx\] and then look in the back of the book

    there are fomulas that i cannot remember for integrating \(\sin^n(x)\) and \(\cos^n(x)\) and i garantee you they are on the back cover of your text

    Yeah, I know. I turn them into the half angles, which I did.

    That stupid cos^2(2t) is getting in the way.

    \(\sin^2(x)=1-\cos^2(x)\) then multiply out it is easier than reinventing the wheel you are trying to derive the formula, (which is admirable) but it is easier to look it up

    Using another half angle won't help because they are multiplied together which just makes it squared afain,

    why i find this topic rather dull. almost everything you need is printed on the back cover of your text

    then i really recommend looking up the formula for \(\int\cos^n(x)dx\)

  21. Dido525

    So I get:\[\frac{ -3 }{ 8 }\int\limits_{}^{}(1-\sin^2(2t))\cos(2t)+(1-\sin^2(2t)+\cos(2t)+1)dt\]

    We have that constant out in front. If we break up the intergal into seperate sums do I distribute that constant to all the intergals?

    here it is \[\int\cos^n(x)dx = \frac{1}{n}\cos(x)\sin(x)+\frac{n-1}{n}\int \cos^{n-2}(x)dx\] use with \(n=4\) and again with \(n=6\)

    \[\sin^2(x)\cos^4(x)=(1-\cos^2(x))\cos^4(x)=\cos^4(x)-\cos^6(x)\]
