    or would it be cos^xcos5x

    no cant combine them...it would just be \[\cos(5x) - \cos^{2} x \cos(5x)\]

    yeah im not sure of way to do it without expanding out the cos(5x) ..... which would be messy

    huh ? integral of cos 5x is just sin 5x/5 +c .

    ok, you need to used \(\sin^2x = (1- \cos2x )/2\)

    ok so here is another, im thinking with this one i can multiply by a 1/2 and use the identity sin2x

    sin x cos x = (sin 2x) /2 then we have formula for sin A cos B

    for the first question by parts can also be used . \[\Large \frac{1}{5}\sin^2(x)\sin(5x)-\frac{2}{5}\int\limits \sin(x)\sin(5x)\cos(x)dx\]

    both of - from that you have factored out, right ? to make -1/4 ?
