Integrate the left side. Simplify it. The result should be equal to the expression on the right.

Or backward - differentiate the right side, the result should be equal to the expression under the integral.

I tried integrating left or differentiating right but it became lengthy.

bobbym, what's EM method?

Hi;

That is an acronym for Experimental Mathematics.

Let u = sin(x) and express sin(3x) in terms of sin.

My earlier suggestion didn't, work, sorry.

But this does.

Start with the right hand side and differentiate chiefly using the product rule.

Use zetafunc`s suggestion to express sin(3x) in terms of sin(x) and sin cubed.

Now make the left hand side look like the right hand side.

You can quickly determine a to start off the sin cubed term and b to avoid any sin squared (remember sin squared + cos squared).

Then fix c to finalise the sin3x and sin x terms.

Then d and f allow you to tidy up the rest.

Was post #3 the official answer?

thanks. It was really very well explained.

well what are the things that should come in our mind for making substitution when we encounter such problems?

Normally with these types of problems, in which you've got a function nested within another function (e.g. log(sin(x)), e^(tan(x)), arctan(sec(x) + cos(x))), what they expect you to do is to make the most obvious substitution -- in this case, whatever the function inside arctan() was.
