I'm trying to solve this problem and guess I'm doing something wrong.
Evaluate Integral tan(x)^5*sec(x)^4 dx
integral tan(x) dx = ln(|sec(x)|)
integral tan(x)^n dx = tan(x)^(n-1)/(n-1) - integral tan(x)^(n-1) dx
The Attempt at a Solution
Integral tan(x)^5*sec(x)^4 dx = 1/8*tan(x)^8 + 1/6*tan(x)^6 + 1/2*tan(x)^2 + ln(|sec(x)|)+c
I don't see what I'm doing wrong...
