I would suggest using parts. I suspect you'd have to integrate by parts again, and still remain with an integral, but that integral would be similar to the question...

Integrate sin3xcos2x dx

apply:
2sinAcosB≡sin(A+B)+sin(A-B) to sin3xcos2x

How do you KNOW that this identity will work and others wont? This is really pissing me off now

????? i dont understand ur query, i logically this identity should be ur first thought:
sin3xcos2x=1/2(sin5x+sinx)
so ∫sin3xcos2x dx = 1/2(-1/5cos5x-cosx)

OK, so, if the question is, cos2xcos5x - why wouldnt I use the identity:

2cosAcosB = cos(a+B) +cos(A-B) ??

well you would use that:
∫cos2xcos5xdx=1/2∫cos7xdx+1/2∫cos(-3x)dx (cos(-3x) is of course ≡ cos3x)
so ∫cos2xcos5xdx=(1/14)sin7x+(1/6)sin3x

Ahar, nice one.

the answer is (-4/5)*((1/2)*sin(3*x)*sin(2*x) + (3/4)*cos(3*x)*cos(2*x))
which can be simplified to the above whoever suggested it.

This thread http://www.uk-learning.net/t25640.html has got all the links to the exam board's sites. Great idea... very useful!
