p(t) = cos(t) + (1)/(cos^2(t)

Find antiderivative.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

Alright, I'm just starting calc 2. I thoroughly covered a lot of integration involving u substitution, and we have not started that in calc 2 yet. U substitution is so ingrained into my mind right now.

Wolfram gives sin(t) + tan(t) which I agree with by quickly going through differentiation, but what rules of integration would you apply? I'm guessing some algebra or trig identity?
