(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

y'=xsec^2(x^2)

2. The attempt at a solution

dy/dx=xsec^2(x^2)

dy=xsec^2(x^2)dx

[tex]\int[/tex]dy=[tex]\int[/tex]xsec^2(x^2)dx

lny= (here i'll do a u substitution)

----

u=x^2 du=1/3x^3dx

... and here's my problem. It seems like that creates a very difficult u-sub to try and manage. Any suggestions/help?
