  1. This has to be done in several steps using integration by parts. To see how it works, take a look at

  2. or, you can expand cos^10(x) as combinations of single powers of cosines:

    512 cos^10(x) = 126 + 210cos(2x) + 120cos(4x) + 45cos(6x) + 10cos(8x) + cos(10x)

    those terms are easy to integrate. They come from repeated use of

    cos(2x) = 2 cos^2(x)-1
    cos(4x) = 2cos^2(2x)-1
    and so on.

    Question: Prove that [integrate {x*sin2x*sin[π/2*cos x]} dx] /(2x-π) } from (0-π) = [ integrate {sin x*cos x*sin[π/2*cos x} dx ] from (0-π). My thoughts on the question: We know that integrate f(x) dx from (0-a) = integrate
