Homework Help: Integral help

  1. Sep 11, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    It looks deceptively easy, but I can't seem to get it...

    2. Relevant equations

    [tex]\sec^2{x} = \tan^2{x} +1[/tex]

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I've tried, but they all end up as trigonometric polynomials
