[itex]\int sin^{2}x dx[/itex]

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I don't see why. Clearly it is designed for me to shoot myself before finishing.

u = (sinx)^2

du = 2sinxcosx dx, magically equal to sin2x dx

v = x

dv = dx

(-xcos2x/2) + (sin2x/4)

=

(-2xcos2x+sin2x)/(4) + C = wrong
