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

I would just like some help on how to find the integral of:

sin(x) / cos(x)^2

2. Relevant equations

integration by parts?

uv-integral of v(du)

3. The attempt at a solution

I tried using integration of parts with u = cos(x)^2 and dv = sin(x) but I just got myself in a bigger mess.

I noticed that sin(x) / cos(x)^2 was equal to tan(x)sec(x). Not sure if that helps though...

Help please?!
