$\int$sec2x = 1/2 * ln|sec2x + tan2x|

$\int$tan2x = -1/2 * ln|cos2x|

$\int_{0}^{\prod/4}$(sec2x - tan2x) = $\int_{0}^{\prod/4}$(1/2ln|sec2x + tan2x|+1/2ln|cos2x|) = $\int_{0}^{\prod/4}$(1/2ln|1+sin2x|) = 1/2ln2

please check it if there is any mistake
answer given as (1/2) ln 2
∫sec2x = 1/2 * log|sec2x + tan2x|

∫tan2x = - 1/2 * log|cos2x|

these are correct
@pavan is correct . @gate u did make a mistake :)  it willbe 2 ln 2
thanks :)
yeah corrected!! thanks
