$${I}=\int_{\mathrm{0}} ^{\frac{\pi}{\mathrm{2}}} \frac{{cos}^{\mathrm{13}} {x}}{{cos}^{\mathrm{13}} {x}+{sin}^{\mathrm{13}} {x}}{dx} \\$$ $$=\int_{\mathrm{0}} ^{\frac{\pi}{\mathrm{2}}} \frac{{cos}^{\mathrm{13}} \left(\frac{\pi}{\mathrm{2}}−{x}\right)}{{cos}^{\mathrm{13}} \left(\frac{\pi}{\mathrm{2}}−{x}\right)+{sin}^{\mathrm{13}} \left(\frac{\pi}{\mathrm{2}}−{x}\right)}{dx} \\$$ $$=\int_{\mathrm{0}} ^{\frac{\pi}{\mathrm{2}}} \frac{{sin}^{\mathrm{13}} {x}}{{sin}^{\mathrm{13}} {x}+{cos}^{\mathrm{13}} {x}}{dx} \\$$ $$\mathrm{2}{I}=\int_{\mathrm{0}} ^{\frac{\pi}{\mathrm{2}}} {dx} \\$$ $${I}=\frac{\pi}{\mathrm{4}} \\$$

$${I}=\underset{\mathrm{0}} {\overset{\frac{\pi}{\mathrm{2}}} {\int}}\frac{{dx}}{\mathrm{1}+{tan}^{\mathrm{13}} \left(\frac{\pi}{\mathrm{2}}−{x}\right)}=\underset{\mathrm{0}} {\overset{\frac{\pi}{\mathrm{2}}} {\int}}\frac{{dx}}{\mathrm{1}+{cot}^{\mathrm{13}} {x}} \\$$ $$=\underset{\mathrm{0}} {\overset{\frac{\pi}{\mathrm{2}}} {\int}}\frac{{dx}}{\mathrm{1}+\frac{\mathrm{1}}{{tan}^{\mathrm{13}} {x}}}=\underset{\mathrm{0}} {\overset{\frac{\pi}{\mathrm{2}}} {\int}}\frac{{tan}^{\mathrm{13}} {x}}{\mathrm{1}+{tan}^{\mathrm{13}} {x}}{dx} \\$$ $$\therefore\mathrm{2}{I}=\underset{\mathrm{0}} {\overset{\frac{\pi}{\mathrm{2}}} {\int}}\frac{\mathrm{1}+{tan}^{\mathrm{13}} {x}}{\mathrm{1}+{tan}^{\mathrm{13}} {x}}{dx}=\left[{x}\right]_{\mathrm{0}\:\:} ^{\frac{\pi}{\mathrm{2}}} =\frac{\pi}{\mathrm{2}} \\$$ $${I}=\frac{\pi}{\mathrm{4}}\:{ans}. \\$$
