Answer:

# sec^2 x - 1/2 tan^2 x +C #

Explanation:

This is integration of the product of two functions. One is sec x and the other is #d/dx (secx)#

Let first function be secx and the second function be # d/dx (sec x)#.

Application of the product rule of integration is:

first function * integral of second - #int# differentiation of first *integral of second

Now applying this rule would result in following:

sec x * sec x - #int# secx tanx * sec x dx

=#sec^2 x - int sec^2 x tan x dx# Hint: [let tan x =t so that sec^ x dx =dt]

=# sec^2 x - 1/2 tan^2 x +C#
