Answer: \frac{-1}{\sin x+\cos x}+c

Hint:Use substitution method to solve this integral.

Given:   \int \frac{\cos x-\sin x}{1+\sin 2 x} d x


        \text { Let } I=\int \frac{\cos x-\sin x}{1+\sin 2 x} d x

                   =\int \frac{\cos x-\sin x}{\sin ^{2} x+\cos ^{2} x+\sin 2 x} d x \quad\left[\because 1=\sin ^{2} x+\cos ^{2} x\right]

                   =\int \frac{\cos x-\sin x}{\sin ^{2} x+\cos ^{2} x+2 \sin x \cos x} d x \quad[\because \sin 2 x=2 \sin x \cos x]

                   =\int \frac{\cos x-\sin x}{(\sin x+\cos x)^{2}} d x \quad\left[\because a^{2}+b^{2}+2 a b=(a+b)^{2}\right]

        \text { Put } \sin x+\cos x=t \Rightarrow(\cos x-\sin x) d x=d t \text { then }

                I=\int \frac{(\cos x-\sin x)}{t^{2}} \frac{d t}{(\cos x-\sin x)}

                    =\int \frac{1}{t^{2}}=\int t^{-2} d t=\frac{t^{-2+1}}{-2+1}+c \quad\left[\because \int x^{n} d x=\frac{x^{n+1}}{n+1}+c\right]


                    =\frac{-1}{\sin x+\cos x}+c \quad[\because t=\sin x+\cos x]
