Homework Statement



I need to calculate the integral:
[tex]\int_{0}^{\frac{\pi}{2}}\frac{\sqrt{\sin x}}{\sqrt{\sin x}+\sqrt{\cos x}}\mathrm{d}x[/tex]

Homework Equations



The Attempt at a Solution


There is a tip: "try substituting [tex]y=\frac{\pi}{2}-x[/tex]. I tried it and didn't get anywhere. I also tried several trigonometric identities.

Thanks in advance!

Yeah you should probably try the suggested substitution again. Are you using the fact that sin(pi/2 - x) = cos x and cos(pi/2 - x) = sin x?
