Hi 123ronnie321;

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

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.

Hi Raven66;

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

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!

Hi anonimnystefy,

All are right then.

CAS shows:

Wolframalpha suggests completing the square.

For some problems, you can use partial fractions.

### Re: Integration by Substitution

Hi;

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

First clean up the interior of the cosine.

### Re: Integration by Substitution

Hi,

No need to use that!
It's only a constant angle there.
Using substitution would make it simpler.

the formula will give you
