Use integration by parts to evaluate the integral of x*sec^2(3x).

My answer is
([x*tan(3x)]/3)-[ln(sec(3x))/9]
but it's incorrect.

u=x dv=sec^2(3x)dx
du=dx v=(1/3)tan(3x)

[xtan(3x)]/3 - integral of(1/3)tan(3x)dx
- (1/3)[ln(sec(3x))/3]
- [ln(sec(3x))/9]

What am I doing wrong?

  1. integral of(1/3)tan(3x)dx
    = (1/3)integral of(sin3x/cos 3x) dx
    = (1/3)ln|sin 3x| + C

    then the final answer is

    (x tan3x)/3 - (1/3)ln|sin 3x| + C

    Not sure if it is right, I have check with the answer in the book and a few integral calculators but they seem to get a different answer ∫ sec^3(x)tan^3(x) dx ∫ sec^3(x)tan(x)(sec^2(x)-1) dx ∫ tan(x)sec(x)[sec^4(x)-sec^2(x)]
