Evaluate the following integrals:

$\int \frac{1}{3+2 \sin x+\cos x} d x$


Given $I=\int \frac{1}{3+2 \sin x+\cos x} d x$

We know that $\sin x=\frac{2 \tan \frac{x}{2}}{1+\tan ^{2} \frac{x}{2}}$ and $\cos x=\frac{1-\tan ^{2} \frac{x}{2}}{1+\tan ^{2} \frac{x}{2}}$

$\Rightarrow \int \frac{1}{3+2 \sin x+\cos x} d x=\int \frac{1}{3+2\left(\frac{2 \tan \frac{x}{2}}{1+\tan ^{2} \frac{x}{2}}\right)+\frac{1-\tan ^{2} \frac{x}{2}}{1+\tan ^{2} \frac{x}{2}}} d x$

$=\int \frac{1+\tan ^{2} \frac{x}{2}}{3+3 \tan ^{2} \frac{x}{2}+4 \tan \frac{x}{2}+1-\tan ^{2} \frac{x}{2}} d x$

Replacing $1+\tan ^{2} x / 2$ in numerator by $\sec ^{2} x / 2$ and putting $\tan x / 2=t$ and $\sec ^{2} x / 2 d x=2 d t$,

$\Rightarrow \int \frac{1+\tan ^{2} \frac{x}{2}}{3+3 \tan ^{2} \frac{x}{2}+4 \tan \frac{x}{2}+1-\tan ^{2} \frac{x}{2}} d x=\int \frac{\sec ^{2} \frac{x}{2}}{2 \tan ^{2} \frac{x}{2}+4 \tan \frac{x}{2}+4} d x$

$=\int \frac{2 d t}{2-2 t}$

$=\int \frac{1}{1-t} d t$

We know that $\int \frac{1}{x} d x=\log |x|+c$

$\Rightarrow \int \frac{1}{1-t} d t=-\log |1-t|+c$

$=-\log \left|1-\tan \frac{x}{2}\right|+c$

$\therefore \mathrm{I}=\int \frac{1}{1-\sin \mathrm{x}+\cos \mathrm{x}} \mathrm{dx}=-\log \left|1-\tan \frac{\mathrm{x}}{2}\right|+\mathrm{c}$
