intigrate w.r.t x

Expert Answer:

f(x) = sec-1x

Put y = sec-1x; x = sec y; dx = sec y tan y dy = sin y dy/cos2y.

sec-1x dx = y sec y tan y  dy

Integrating by parts,

= y sec y tan y dy - (sec y tan y dy) dy

= y sec y - sec y dy

= y sec y - ln |sec y + tan y| + c

= (sec-1x) x - ln |x + tan sec-1x| + c
