Evaluate the integral using any method:
(Integral)sec^3x/tanx dx
I started it out and got secx(1tan^2x)/tanx. I know I just have to continue simplifying and finding the integral, but I'm stuck on the next couple of steps.
Also, I have another question witht he same directions:(integral)sin^3/cosx dx. What would I do here?
Thank you!

Calc 
Reiny,
I did:
sec^3x/tanx
= (1/cos^3 x)(cosx/sinx)
= 1/((sinx)(cos^2 x)
so I went to my favourite integrator page and got

You should realize that when Wolfram says log(...)
they really mean ln(...)
for your 2nd

Calc 
H,
thanks for the first part. i wanted something that was more stepbystep for the second one.

Calc 
Reiny,
sin^3/cosx
= (sinx/cos)(sin^2x)
= tanx sin^2 x
then

same as above
