Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0why not? it solves the problem too, but the solution may not be attractive to @bii17

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i mean use cos^3 (x) =1/4 *(cos3x +3cosx)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[1/4 [x(\cos 3x + 3\cos x)]dx\] is this correct? @matricked

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so there will be u and du den dv and v... i used Dv as cos 3x dx the V will be 1/3 sin 3x ???
