Homework Help: Help with trigonometric integral

  1. Sep 19, 2011 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    i used the above equation, then expanded it all out and multiplied by the denominator and hoped i would then be able to do a simple substitution that would give me an antiderivative after integrating but that hasn't been working for me
    any ideas?

    A relatively straightforward method involves a series of substitutions. I would start with [itex]u=1-\sin x[/itex]
