This is a trigonometric integration using trig identities.

S tanX^3 secX dX

S tanX^2 secX tanX dX

S (secX^2 -1) secX tanX dX

u = secX

du = secX tanX

S ( u^2 - 1) du

1/3secX^3 - secX + C

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

Integration of tan pow4x?

integral of (tanx)^4 (tanx)^4 = (tanx)^2 (tanx)^2 =(sec^2 x - 1)(tan^2 x) =(sec^2 x)(tan^2 x) - tan^2 x = integral of sec^2 x tan^2 x dx - integral of tan^2 x dx First, integral of sec^2 x tan^2 x dx Let u = tanx because that would make du = sec^2 x dx so then we have integral of u^2 du which is (1/3)u^3 substituting back in tanx we get (1/3)tan^3 x Next, integral of tan^2 x tan^2 x = sec^2 x -1 integral of sec^2 x - 1 = integral of sec^2 x dx - integral 1 dx = tanx - x so putting it all together we have integral of tan^4 x dx = (1/3)tan^3 x - tanx + x + C

What is the integral of tan squared x?

Note that for sec²(x) - tan²(x) = 1, we have: -tan²(x) = 1 - sec²(x) tan²(x) = sec²(x) - 1 Rewrite the expression as: ∫ (sec²(x) - 1) dx = ∫ sec²(x) dx - ∫ 1 dx Finally, integrate each expression to get: tan(x) - x + K where K is the arbitrary constant

What is the integral of tan x-3 dx?

In this specific example one would need to use the u substitution method. * Set u to be x - 3 * Derive x - 3 * u = x - 3 * du = dx Now that we have integrated u we can remove the x - 3 and substitute in u and remove the dx and substitute in du. This is what we have after substituting: * (the integrand of) tan(u)du Now integrate tan(u)du * the Integral of tan(u)du is: * sec2(u) Now resubstitute what we set as u. In this case we set x - 3 to u. This will give us our final answer and integral of tan(x-3)dx. * sec2(x - 3)
