Integral Help

I need to find the integral of (sin x)/ cos^3 x

I let u= cos x, then got -du= sin x
(Is this right correct?)
I then rewrote the integral as the integral of -du/ u^3 and then rewrote that as the integral of - du(u^-3). For this part, I wasn't sure how to finish. I was hoping to get some help. I'd really appreciate any input

  1. u = cosx

    du = -sinx dx

    -du/u^-3

    1/2cos^2x +c

    Or
    sec^2 x /2 + c

    That's the same as the integral of sin^2 x dx. Use integration by parts. Let sin x = u and sin x dx = dv v = -cos x du = cos x dx The integral is u v - integral of v du = -sinx cosx + integral of cos^2 dx which can be rewritten
