\[\text{Let } u = sin(x) \implies du = cos(x)\ dx\] Should be pretty straight forward from there.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

does sin^9(x) become sin^-9(x)?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

If you like, sure. It actually becomes \(u^{-9}\)

OpenStudy (anonymous):

so i will come to get -1/8(sin(x)^-8 and i will plug in pi/2 and pi/6 from there?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

\[\text{Let } u = sin(x) \implies du = cos(x)\ dx\]\[\large\implies \int_{\pi/6}^{\pi/2}\frac{cos(x)}{sin^9(x)}\ dx\]\[\large=\int_{1/2}^1\frac{1}{u^9}\ du\]\[\large = \int_{1/2}^1 u^{-9} \]\[\large= -\left.\frac{1}{8u^8}\right|^1_{1/2}\]

Or yeah, plugging in the original limits is also fine if you convert back to the original function instead of using u.
