Evaluate the indefinite integral.
∫ sec^3x tanx dx
I let u=tanx
took derivative..
du=sec^2x dx
..now what??

sec^3 x tan x dx
 = integral symbol
Rewrite as
 sec^2 x sec x tan x dx
u = sec x
du = sec x tan x
 u^2 du
1/3 u^3 + C
Substitute back in, u = sec x
1/3 sec^3 x + C

Hello! I really don't think I am understanding my calc hw. Please help me fix my errors. Thank you! 1. integral from 0 to pi/4 of (tanx^2)(secx^4)dx It says u = tan x to substitute So if I use u = tan x, then my du = secx^2 then I …

find dy/dx y=ln (secx + tanx) Let u= secx + tan x dy/dx= 1/u * du/dx now, put the derivative of d secx/dx + dtanx/dx in. You may have some challenging algebra to simplify it. Use the chain rule. Let y(u) = ln u u(x) = sec x + tan x …

find the derivative of f(x)=tanx4/secx I used the quotient rule and got (sec^2x4)(secx)(tanx4)(cosx)/sec^2x but I'm pretty sure that's wrong. Help. Thanks.

Perform the addition or subtraction. tanx  sec^2x/tanx tan^2(x)/tan(x)  sec^2x/tanx = tan^2x sec^2x / tanx then I use the identity 1+tan^2u=sec^2u I do not know what to do at this point.

Derivative of y=sec(tanx)? I don't get how it is secxsecx*secxtanx*tanxtanx. Where does an extra tanx come from?
