Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2then you can always write sin^2 u cos^2 u du as 1/4 (sin^2 2u)du and integrating square of sin function is a pretty standard procedure. let me know if you get stuck in any step.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I am up to sin^2 u cos^2 u once I rewrite cos^2 u in format 1sin^2u I get sin^2u  sin^4 u du Now I am stuck.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0see if below helps : sin^2u cos^2u = 1/4 [ sin(2u) ]^2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok so you used a doubleangle formula for sin2u. so now I have to simplift 1/4(sin2u)^2? Trig is my weakness  it's like Chinese :(

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes so to integrate that I get (1cos4x)/2 dx using the sine halfangle formula. So I have the integral 1/4(1cos4x / 2)dx I can replace the 1cos4x with sin4x so then I have 1/4(sin4x/2)dx Where to from here? :/

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0And also I didn't see anywhere where I got rid of the dx = cos x du so there must be an error somewhere

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\int\limits_{}^{}x ^{2}\sqrt{1x ^{2}}dx\] let x=1 sin x Then: \[dx=\cos \theta d \theta; x ^{2}=\sin ^{2}\theta; 1x ^{2}=\cos ^{2}\theta; \sqrt{\cos ^{2}\theta}=\cos \theta\] Then the original integral becomes \[\int\limits_{}^{}\sin ^{2}\theta*\cos \theta d \theta=\frac{ \sin ^{3}\theta }{ 3 }+C\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Since x=sin theta, x/1=sin theta, and theta = \[\theta=\sin ^{1}\frac{ x }{ 1 }.\] Substitute this into the prior expression to obtain the integral in terms of x. (Result is mighty simple.)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I am still stuck on this one. The answer is: $\frac{x\sqrt{1x^2}\left(2x^21\right)+\arcsin \left(x\right)}{8}+C$ I have NO idea how 1/4(sin^2 2theta) translates into this...... please help!!
