I'm doing trigonometric integrals
i wanted to know im doing step
is my answer right?

∫ tan^3 (2x) sec^5(2x) dx
=∫ tan^2(2x) sec^4(2x) tan*sec(2x) dx
=∫ (sec^2(2x)-1)sec^4 tan*sec(2x) dx
let u=sec x, du= 1/2 tan*sec(2x) dx
=1/2∫ (u^2(2x)-1) u^4 du
=1/2∫ (u^8(2x)-u^4) du
=1/2 sec^9/9-sec^5/5 +c

  • Calculus AP -

    you dropped some 2's here and there, and the final integral is

    1/2∫ (u^2-1) u^4 du
    = 1/2 ∫ u^6 - u^4 du
    = 1/2 (1/7 u^7 - 1/5 u^5)
    = 1/14 sec^7(2x) - 1/10 sec^5(2x) + C
