integral 1 = a and b = 4 of

sinx dx/(1+cos)^2

u = cosx

du = -sinx dx

so from here I don't know if I can do:

-1 du = sinx dx

or 1/sin du = x dx

du = -sin x dx

so we have

-du/u

**Paul**, Tuesday, August 7, 2012 at 5:25pmso I tried again and I got this, don't know if it's good:(I also put the wrong a and b)

integral 0 = a and b = pi/3 of

sinx dx/(1+cos)^2

u = cosx

du= -sinxdx

-1 du = sinx dx

so: integral -1 du/(1+u)^2

= 1/(u+1)

if x = 0, then u = 1

if x = pi/3, then u = 1

so 1/1+1 - 1/1+1 = 0

Is this correct?

**Paul**, Tuesday, August 7, 2012 at 5:30pmok Damon, so if you integrate what you have me, you get 1/u no? Because 1/u^2 = -1/u, so -1/u^2 = 1/u?

-1/(1+cos x) + c

**Damon**, Tuesday, August 7, 2012 at 5:30pmYes, you have it.
