how to take the integral of cos(square root of x) dx.
need to use substitution and integration by parts but I don't know what to substitute

let t = x^.5
dt = .5 x^.5 dx
so dx = 2 x^.5 dt which is dx = 2 t dt
so integral of 2 t cos t dt
that might help 
(Integral of) cos x^(1/2) dx
Do the substitution part first.
Let x^(1/2) = y
x = y^2
dx = 2y du
So the integral becomes, after substitution
2*(Integral of)y cos y dy
Now use integration by parts. You may have to use it twice.
You should end up with
2 cos y + y sin y
Then substitute back x in terms of y
= 2 cos(sqrt x) + 2sqrt x * sin(sqrt x) 
integral of 2 t cos t dt
let u = 2 t
so du = 2 dt
let dv = cos t dt
so v = sin t
u v = 2 t sin t
v du = 2 sin t dt
u v  integral v du
= 2 t sin t + 2 cos t 
Remarkable :) LOL

That's the same as the integral of sin^2 x dx. Use integration by parts. Let sin x = u and sin x dx = dv v = cos x du = cos x dx The integral is u v  integral of v du = sinx cosx + integral of cos^2 dx which can be rewritten integral …
