# ∫〖Sin^(2 ) x cos2x dx〗 ( solving it, getting + c) could need some help

## Homework Statement

∫〖Sin^(2 ) x * cos2x dx〗

## Homework Equations

The right answer should be: sin 2x / 4 - x/4 - sin4x / 16

## The Attempt at a Solution

If i would set Sin^(2 ) x= (1-cos2x)/2 I can replace it in the integral
Then we get:
∫▒〖(1-cos2x)/2 cos2x dx〗
As far as I am concerned we cannot use the constant multiple rule because there is no constant to multiply

I don’t know how to go on from here to solve it 

\begin{align*} \int \sin^2 x\cos 2x\,dx &= \int\left(\frac{1-\cos 2x}{2}\right)\cos 2x\,dx \\ &= \frac{1}{2}\int(\cos 2x - \cos^2 2x)\,dx \\ &= \frac{1}{2}\int\cos 2x\,dx - \frac{1}{2}\int \cos^2 2x\,dx \end{align*}
