This Demonstration shows the first two steps in how to put an odd power of a sine into a form suitable for integration. Suppose the expression is . (1) split off one sine to get (2) use to express in terms of (3) substitute , because , which absorbs the split-off sine (4) expand the polynomial in (unless ) (5) integrate the resulting polynomial in terms of (6) substitute back
