OK, I know the solution for cos^3 x dx is sinx - sin^3 x / 3 + C.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

And that

you basically solve

integral of cosx*(1-sin^2x) dx. to get it.

but,...

what I don't get is how do you solve cosx*(1-sin^x) dx... is there a trick that I didn't get from the parts formula?
