anti derivative

please help me find anti derivative of -sinx * cos^2x

am i using integration by parts?

  • anti derivative -

    No. Use substitution.
    Let u = cos x. Then du = -sin x dx
    The integral becomes that of
    u^2 du, which is u^3/3

    After substituting back, that becomes (cos^3 x)/3
