Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[ \tan^3 x \sec x = \tan x \sec x ( \sec^2 x  1)\] seems like it will get the same

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0let u = sec x then proceed. du= sec x tan x dx so it all becomes \(\int (u^2  1) du\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0dear are you solving integral by parts?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it will become like this i guess u^3/3  u +c

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\( \int (\sec^21) \tan x \sec x dx\) =\( \int (\sec^21) d(\sec x)\) =\( \int (u^21) du\), where u=\sec x\) by substitution.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it should be, yeah. :) you can always check your answers with wolfram.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0just take sec x out. and also, the integral, \(\int du=u\)

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\(\int (u^21) du = \int u^2 du  \int du\) following the integral, it becomes, \(\frac{u^3}{3}  u+C\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i just wanna get the same answer as in my book...:)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh. unfortunately, either your book's wrong, or the computer integration is wrong. because wolfram agrees with you....lol

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah i have seen there but what you think about book's anwer is that wrong,there is really less possibilit though and yes lolz?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if we solve this by ''integration by parts'' rather tha by substituion?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\int\limits uvdx= u \int\limits vdx  \int\limits(\int\limits vdx) u'dx\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0same way, but this time i still let du=d sec x tan x dx. and v=sec^2 1 sorry, gtg, but i think you'll still get the same answer...(or that's what my calc tells me)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@Shadowys okay i think my all books are wrong this time.(there is no benifit or edge having more than one books) :)!
