Hi 123ronnie321;

Welcome to the forum! That is not the correct answer.

Some similar solved examples on integration by substitution are available at http://www.math24.net/change-of-variable.html.

Hi Raven66;

Welcome to the forum! That is a nice site. Some nice stuff on surface integrals there.

Hi 123ronnie321,

Yes, how did you solve it?

Hi bobbym,

Strange! Sage too couldn't do it.

Looks like the packages do not use the properties of definite integrals.

You know when I posed this was a long time ago. That is exactly what I did too. No one got it for a long time. Very good work!

Thanks.

How do you integrate sin(u)?

Hi anonimnystefy,

All are right then.

CAS shows:

Wolframalpha suggests completing the square.

For some problems, you can use partial fractions.

Hi;

That looks like it will end up as an integration by parts.

First clean up the interior of the cosine.

Of course that result can be rigorously obtained, but who cares?

Hi,

No need to use that!

It's only a constant angle there.

Using substitution would make it simpler.

Hi;

the formula will give you

Which cleans up the constant too.
