Evaluate the integral.

{eq}\displaystyle \int 3 \tan^2 x \sec^3 x\ dx {/eq}.


Evaluate the integral.

{eq}\displaystyle \int 3 \tan^2 x \sec^3 x\ dx {/eq}.

Indefinite Integral in Calculus:

Integration techniques can be used to find anti derivative of a trigonometric function.

To solve this problem, we'll use integration by substitution, which is also called u-substitution and we'll also use integral reduction rule : {eq}\displaystyle \int \sec ^{n}x \ dx=\dfrac {\sec ^{n-1}x \sin x}{n-1}+ \dfrac{n-2}{n-1} \int \sec^{n-2} x \ dx {/eq}

We are given:

{eq}\displaystyle\int 3 \tan^2(x) \sec^3(x) \, \mathrm{d}x {/eq}

Take the constant out:

{eq}=\displaystyle 3 \int \sec^3(x)...
