    Is it \(\frac{x^2}{\sqrt{1+x^2}}?\)

    \( \int \frac{x^2 dx}{\sqrt{1+x^2}} \)

    You know that the most general anti-derivative of it is: \[\int\limits {x^2 \over \sqrt{1+x^2}}dx\] The best way to evaluate this integral is by using trig substitution, \(x=\tan(z)\).

    oh, I'm so sorry, insted of 1+x^2 is 1-x^2

    \(x=\tan(z) \implies dx=\sec^2(z)dz\), the integral becomes: \[\int\limits {\tan^2(z)\sec^2(z) dz \over \sec(z)}=\int\limits \tan^2(z)\sec(z)dz\]

    You will use the same method, but substitute \(x=\sin(z)\) instead!

    \[\frac{x^2+ 1-1 }{\sqrt{1-x^2}}\] \[-\sqrt{1-x^2} + \frac{1}{\sqrt{1-x^2}}\] \[x = \sin\theta \] \[dx = \cos\theta d\theta\] \[-\cos^2\theta + 1\]
