A(2sinx + cosx) + B(2cosx - sinx) = sinx + 8cosx

I got A = 2, B = 3, which the answers said were correct.

However, another part of the question asked

hence integrate

sinx + 8cosx

-------------dx

2sinx + cosx

and the answers were 2x + 3Ln (2sinx + cosx) + C

Could you explain how to get this?

Thanks in advance !!! :)

**Steve**, Friday, October 19, 2012 at 11:08amuse what the first part showed. Using c for cos and s for sin, you showed that

s+8c = 2(2s+c) + 3(2c-s)

so,

(s+8c)/(2s+c)

= [2(2s+c) + 3(2c-s)]/(2s+c)

= 2 + 3(2c-s)/(2s+c)

now, you have ∫2 dx + ∫3du/u

integral is

2x + 3lnu

= 2x + 3ln(2s+c) + C
