Am I allowed to multiply an entire integral (on the inside AND the outside) by negative 1? I have a potential trig identity in the integral that will only work if it's multiplied by 1...

Yes, you can multiply the integrated function by a constant, inside the integral. The result will be that constant times the original integral.

The problem is to evaluate the integral 10secxtanx dx, from 1/7 pi to 3/8 pi. What I've done so far is evaluated the integral since secxtanx is a trig identity, so the integral of that is secx. I took out the 10 since it was a constant …
