Factorize completely x^3 - 6x^2 + 11x - 6

Let f(x) = x^3 - 6x^2 + 11x - 6.

Try x = 1:   f(1) = 1 - 6 + 11 - 6 = 0

So x - 1 is a factot of f(x).

Try x = 2:   f(2) = 8 - 24 + 22 - 6 = 0

So x - 2 is a factot of f(x).

Try x = 3:  f(3) = 27 - 54 + 33 - 6 = 0

So x - 3 is a factot of f(x).

Thus         x^3 - 6x^2 + 11x - 6 = (x - 1)(x - 2)(x - 3)

How do I integrate by parts?

How do I integrate terms with sin^2(x) and cos^2(x) in them? For example integrate (1+sin(x))^2 with respect to x

Express 3 cos θ + 4 sin θ in the form R cos(θ – α), where R and α are constants, R > 0 and 0 < α < 90°.

Can you explain where the "Integration by parts" formula comes from?
