I think it must be sin4(x-3) insted of cos4(x-3) in the last step !

Yes, you could do, as there is a "c" to wrap up the constants (though you would change the cos term to a sin term as per your original question!)

Yes!

Because: $$\int{\cos(4u)}\ du = \frac{1}{4}\sin(4u)$$

Also in this question, why they didn't wrote $$\frac{1}{2}(x+1)$$  insted of $$\frac{1}{2}x$$ !

$$\frac{1}{2}\int (1+\cos{2(x+1)})dx=\frac{1}{2}\int dx+\frac{1}{2}\int \cos{2(x+1)}dx$$

so the single x comes from the first integral on the right-hand side. However, you could add whatever constant you like, because, as it's an indefinite integral, any other constants are accounted for in the "c" at the end.

So here can I wrote $$\frac{3}{8}x$$ insted of $$\frac{3}{8}(x-3)$$  ?
