So, we'll have to calculate the indefinite integral of the function (cos x)^7*sin x.
Int (cos x)^7*sin x dx
We'll solve the indefinite integral using substitution technique.
We'll put cos x = t =>-sin x dx = dt
We'll raise to 7th power cos x:
(cos x)^7 = t^7
We'll re-write the integral:
-Int t^7 dt = -t^8/8 + c
We'll substitute t by cos x:
Int (cos x)^7*sin x dx = -(cos x)^8/8 + C
