Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\csc^2x=\cot^2x+1\]so\[\int\csc^5xdx=\int\csc x(\csc^4x)dx=\int\csc x(1+\cot^2x)^2dx\]this can be done from here using usubstitutions; remember that\[\frac d{dx}\csc x=\csc x\cot x\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1oh dear, I really messed that up, never mind my original suggestion... your integral is actually pretty darn tricky, I will have to reevaluate my approach.
