#### Explanation:

We want to solve

#I=intcos^2(x)/sin(x)+sin(x)+1dx#

Rewrite the integrand

#I=int(1-sin^2(x))/sin(x)+sin(x)+1dx#

#color(white)(I)=intcsc(x)-sin(x)+sin(x)+1dx#

#color(white)(I)=intcsc(x)+1dx#

#color(white)(I)=intcsc(x)+int1dx#

We know the integral of cosecant as (otherwise look here )

#I_1=intcsc(x)dx=-ln(abs(csc(x)+cot(x)))+C#

Thus

#I=-ln(abs(csc(x)+cot(x)))+x+C#
