Evaluation of $\displaystyle \int \frac{x^2+n(n-1)}{(x\cdot \sin x+n\cdot \cos x)^2}dx$

$\bf{My\; Solution:}$ Using $\displaystyle (x\cdot \sin x+n\cdot \cos x) = \sqrt{x^2+n^2}\left\{\frac{x}{\sqrt{x^2+n^2}}\cdot \sin x+\frac{n}{\sqrt{x^2+n^2}}\cdot \cos x\right\}$

$$\displaystyle = \sqrt{x^2+n^2}\cdot \cos\left(x-\phi\right)\;,$$ where $\displaystyle \sin \phi = \frac{x}{\sqrt{x^2+n^2}}$ and $\displaystyle \cos \phi = \frac{n}{\sqrt{x^2+n^2}}$ and $\displaystyle \tan \phi = \frac{x}{n}\Rightarrow \phi = \tan^{-1}\left(\frac{x}{n}\right)$

So Integral is $$\displaystyle = \int \sec^2(x-\phi)\cdot \left(\frac{x^2+n(n-1)}{x^2+n^2}\right)dx$$

Now Let $$\displaystyle (x-\phi) = y\Rightarrow \left(x-\tan^{-1}\left(\frac{x}{n}\right)\right)=y$$. Then $$\displaystyle \left(\frac{x^2+n(n-1)}{x^2+n^2}\right)dx = dy$$

So Integral is $$\displaystyle \int \sec^2(y)dy = \tan y +\mathbb{C} = \tan\left(x-\tan^{-1}\left(\frac{x}{n}\right)\right)+\mathbb{C}$$

So $$\displaystyle \int \frac{x^2+n(n-1)}{(x\cdot \sin x+n\cdot \cos x)^2}dx = \left(\frac{n\cdot \tan x-x}{n+x\cdot \tan x}\right)+\mathbb{C}$$

My Question is , Is there is any other solution other then that, because It is very Complex and Lengthy.

If Yes, The please write here



This is a shorter, but perhaps uglier, solution:

Using the identities $n^2+x^2=(n\sin x-x\cos x)^2+(n\cos x+x\sin x)^2$ and

$n=\sin x(n\sin x-x\cos x)+\cos x(n\cos x+x\sin x)$, we can rewrite the integral as

$\displaystyle \int\frac{(n\sin x-x\cos x)^2+(n\cos x+x\sin x)^2-[\sin x(n\sin x-x\cos x)+\cos x(n\cos x+x\sin x)]}{(n\cos x+x\sin x)^2} dx$

$\displaystyle=\int\frac{(n\cos x+x\sin x)[n\cos x+x\sin x-\cos x]-(n\sin x-x\cos x)[-n\sin x+x\cos x+\sin x]}{(n\cos x+x\sin x)^2} dx$

$\displaystyle=\int\bigg(\frac{n\sin x-x\cos x}{n\cos x+x\sin x}\bigg)^{\prime} dx$

$\;\;\;\;\displaystyle=\frac{n\sin x-x\cos x}{n\cos x+x\sin x}.$
