\(\displaystyle \int \frac{\tan^3 x}{\sin^3 x +\cos^3 x} dx= \int \frac{\tan^3 x +1}{\sin^3 x +\cos^3 x} dx - \int \frac{1}{\sin^3 x +\cos^3 x} dx \)

Now working on the first one, take \(\displaystyle \cos^3 x\) as a common factor in the denominator : \(\displaystyle \int \frac{\tan^3 x +1}{\sin^3 x +\cos^3 x} dx = \int \frac{\tan^3 x +1}{\cos^3 x (\tan^3 x +1)} dx = \int \sec^3 x dx \)

Let \(\displaystyle I = \int \sec^3 x dx\) , Integrating by parts with \(\displaystyle u=\sec x , dv= \sec^2 x dx\) :

\(\displaystyle I= \sec x \tan x - \int \sec x \tan^2 x dx= \sec x \tan x - \int \sec x (\sec^2 x -1) dx = \sec x \tan x - \int \sec^3 x dx + \int \sec x dx \)

\(\displaystyle => I= \sec x \tan x - I + \ln(\sec x + \tan x) \)

\(\displaystyle => I= \frac{ \sec x \tan x + \ln(\sec x + \tan x)}{2} \)

Then we have :

\(\displaystyle \int \frac{\tan^3 x}{\sin^3 x +\cos^3 x} dx = \frac{ \sec x \tan x + \ln(\sec x + \tan x)}{2} - \int \frac{1}{\sin^3 x +\cos^3 x} dx\)

You can see the solution to the last integral from This note. Thus:

\(\displaystyle \boxed{\int \frac{\tan^3 x}{\sin^3 x +\cos^3 x} dx = \frac{ \sec x \tan x + \ln(\sec x + \tan x)}{2} - \frac{\sqrt{2}}{6} \ln(\frac{\cos x -\sin x -\sqrt{2}}{\cos x -\sin x +\sqrt{2}}) + \frac{2}{3} \arctan(\cos x -\sin x ) + C} \) Hasan Kassim · 2 years, 8 months ago

@Hasan Kassim Ahha very tricky! I see what you did there. Very good.

Hmm... Which one looks more threatening, one with tangent or one with just sin and cos on bottom? Sayin' cause it seems like tan can be used to simplify sin and cos, and plus when I usually see many things I think they can be manipulated in a certain way to be less complex (like this). And when there's less stuff it seems like you have less options to work with and it all looks scary lol... But this is cause I'm experienced, I guess. What about for those who ain't that pro at math? DUnno... Lol.

Well, King Integral, I've got more stuff coming up for ya. Meanwhile, maintain that streak (we're head to head)! Whoever breaks first is a dweeb.

Now get back to being awesome

@John Muradeli Yes u are right , integrals with less expressions are more confusing more threatening.

Btw I will try to keep my streak alive although my school began today :) Hasan Kassim · 2 years, 8 months ago

@Hasan Kassim Hehe well I kinda cheat: go to practice, algebra, pattern recognition. takes 5 seconds xD

the toughest part is not to forget. but yeh, go with that if ya want :D John Muradeli · 2 years, 8 months ago

@John Muradeli Cheating huh?!

heheh me too I solve level one algeba problem to keep my streak :)) Hasan Kassim · 2 years, 8 months ago

@Hasan Kassim O_O oooomg no way did you actually do this?? I got no time to check but WHOA and for some reason your answer looks waay shorter than and of WolframAlpha's answers. I'ma check later but great job if you got it right John Muradeli · 2 years, 8 months ago

@John Muradeli yes I checked it several times,also I will try to find a way to prove that wolfram alpha answers equal this. Hasan Kassim · 2 years, 8 months ago

@Hasan Kassim Heh if you do that that'd be totally on hook. Also try to do it without like just differentiating it, that's kinda wack.

right now me gotta speed off somewhere, but I shall address this feat when I return. Think of any cool names for yourself by then ;) I thought of Intergral Master or King Integral lol... John Muradeli · 2 years, 8 months ago
