Not sure if it is right, I have check with the answer in the book and a few integral calculators but they seem to get a different answer

∫ sec^3(x)tan^3(x) dx

∫ sec^3(x)tan(x)(sec^2(x)-1) dx

∫ tan(x)sec(x)[sec^4(x)-sec^2(x)] dx

∫ tan(x)sec(x)[(tan^2(x)+1)^2-tan^2(x)-1] dx

∫ tan(x)sec(x)(1+2tan(x)+tan^2(x)-tan^2(x)-1) dx

∫ 2tan^2(x)sec(x) dx

∫ 2(sec^2(x)-1)sec(x) dx

∫ 2sec^3(x)-2sec(x) dx

2∫ sec^3(x) dx -2∫ sec(x) dx

*reduction formula

2tan(x)sec(x)-ln(tan(x)+sec(x))

In google type:

wolfram alpha

When you see lis of results click on:

Wolfram Alpha:Computational Knowledge Engine

When page be open in rectangle type:

integrate sec^3(x)tan^3(x) dx

and click option =

After few secons you will see result.

Then click option Show steps

Try to simplify your "different answers".

Probably your "different answers" is same solutions write in different form.

right, because my answer can be simplified into:

sec^5(x)/5-sec^3(x)/3
