Hello! I really don't think I am understanding my calc hw. Please help me fix my errors. Thank you!

1. integral from 0 to pi/4 of (tanx^2)(secx^4)dx

It says u = tan x to substitute

So if I use u = tan x, then my du = secx^2

then I have integral of (u^2)

then (1/3)u^3.....to get (1/3)tanx^3 then solve as 0 to pi/4 .......is that right?

2. integral from 0 to 2root3 of (x^3)/(root(16-x^2))

I am pretty sure this has something to do with trig substitution. is it something with tan-1 or cos(theta)?

I am not sure how to go about this one at all.

Thanks again! =)

** no. du= sec^2x dx **
then I have integral of (u^2)

** Hmmm. INT u^2 sec^4x du/sec^2x
**

INT u^2 sec^2x du

how are you going to get rid of the sec^2 x?
second: draw the imaginary triangle, 4 is the hypotenuse, with angle theta , x is the opposite side, the adjacent side is sqrt (16-x^2)

then (1/3)u^3.....to get (1/3)tanx^3 then solve as 0 to pi/4 .......is that right?
