    isn't this 0.5*integral of dx/(sinx+cosx)?

    I got \[\frac{1}{2\sqrt2}*\ln|\csc(2x+\pi/4)-\cot(2x+\pi/4)|\] can anyone check if it's the right answer?

    i tried to integrate on wolfram alpha, it gives me something else. To check if they are equal, I plugged a number for x in both equations, but got different answer.. :O is that normal?

    i think they will be equivalent, with just different form, which value you tried ?

    -10 what ? degrees or radians ?

    i checked, it comes out to be different. also i missed earlier that integral of cosec x is ln |cosec x + cot x|+c and you've typed - *minus*

    but our method is correct, maybe it comes different because of the constant '+c' which might be different for both forms....

    hey!!! i got it, if i calculate the \[\int\limits_{a}^{b}f(x)\] of both equations, it gives the same value if a and b are the same, so it's correct! Also thanks a lot for spending so much time on this, I really appreciate it!
