Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0think the best bet is to start with \[\int \sin^2(x)(1\sin^2(x))dx\] then \[\int \sin^2(x)dx\int\sin^4(x)dx\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0first one is probably in you book use \[\sin^2(x)=\frac{1}{2}(1\cos(2x)\] second use the reduction formula on the back cover of your text

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\(\large \sin^2 x \cos^2 x = (\sin x \cos x)^2 = \frac{1}{4} \sin^2 2x = \frac{1}{4} ( \frac{1\cos4x}{2} ) \)
