Prove that,$\int_{0}^{\infty}\dfrac{1}{x^3}\sin^3\left(x-\dfrac{1}{x} \right)^5\, dx=0$
and$\int_{-1}^{0}\dfrac{x^2+2x}{\ln{(x+1)}} dx=\ln{3}$.I have no idea how to solve these problems!

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science
related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should
explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments
should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .

Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.

Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.

Stay on topic — we're all here to learn more about math and science, not to hear about your favorite get-rich-quick scheme or current world events.

Hello Adarsh. I'm really sorry but I won't be able to help now; I'm truly exhausted after coaching class since 10 in the morning - and the same schedule is in place for tomorrow. I'll answer as soon as I can for sure.

@Adarsh Kumar @Rajdeep Dhingra The first Integral is really hard. Also, it is not equal to $0.$ The Integral is equivalent to $-\frac15 \int_0^\infty \sin^3(u) u^{-3/5} du \approx {-0.1535}$ Anyway, to be able to compute the original Integral, you need to know some conditions for which an Integral becomes Riemann Improper Integrable. I can try to proceed if you want, but this is really miles and miles above our level.

No problem bhaiya!I understand!

Hint about second integral, take x+1=t, and do it with the help of differentiation under integral.

Actually i tried that and I got,$\int_{0}^{1}\dfrac{t^2-1}{\ln{t}}dt$,how to proceed now?

@Adarsh Kumar Seems you've got some excellent answers. I would have done the second the same way as Rajdeep.

Sir the 1st one ? @Samarpit Swain solution is wrong.

Come on Rajdeep! I'm not Sir!$$I'll have a go at it in half an hour.
