You can rewrite this as

and notice that is nearly the derivative of .

Does that help or are you still unsure?

Hmmm im still not too sure - where do i go from there??

When you see a function/derivative pattern like this (you really need to look out for them) then you can either substitute the function - in this case and the will cancel. Or you can use "recognition" methods if you're comfortable with them.

You don't need to integrate that. Which method (out of the two I gave you) are you using? If you're using substitution then please post your working.

I was using substitution - im out at the moment I’ll send it abit later. But can u not use u=cos^5 then differentiate that?

That won’t work as a substitution. But considering the derivative of cos^(-4)x is one way to do this question.

If you’re trying to use “recognition” methods then you always add 1 to the power and consider its derivative.

If you’re trying to use substitution then you should substitute u=cos(x).
