Previous examples explained how to integrate terms involving a trigonometric function raised to odd-numbered powers. But what do we do when multiple functions are all raised to an even-numbered power?
These problems will be solved by using the 'Power Reducing' or 'Half Angle' identity function to reduce the power of the trigonometric function. From that point, it is a matter of using substitutiion to solve the remainder of the problem.
For example, we solve:
sin 2 x cos 2 x d x
