Homework Help: Another integral

  1. Sep 27, 2011 #1
    Find the integral of

    X^3sin(x^2)

    No useful substitutions I can find, integration by parts gets chaotic.

    Write it as x(x2)sin(x2) and begin with substitution u = x2.

    Got the answer. Thank you.

    I wish I were able to recognize these things more quickly.
