How do you get the secant and cosecant intergration formulas?
I do not understand how the integral of secant x is ln(secant x + tangent x)+C and how the integral of cosecant x is -ln(cosecant x + cotangent x). Can someone please explain to me how these are derived?
Re: How do you get the secant and cosecant intergration formulas?
Basicly we begin with sec x. We multiply above and below by sec x + tan x to get:

A logarithm is just a misspelled algorithm.
