# Integration C4 Question

1. Just came across a question where it says to integrate:

1/sec^2y

I thought you'd do 1/(1+tan^2x) but that seems to complicate matters ?

Would appreciate the help,

Many thanks!
2. 1/sec2y = cos2y

this might help or I might be completely wrong xD
I'm 80% sure this will will help though

oh its a sqaured!
yh intergrate cos^2y
