    try completing squares .. 2x - x^2 = 1 - (1-x)^2

    LOL ... it wasn't trig substitution, http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=integrate+x%2F%28sqrt%282x+-+x^2%29%29

    the solution . since the integral of dx/(a^2 - x^2) = sin^-1 (x/a) + c then my question after completing square would be .. 2/(1-(x-1)^2)^1/2 and its sin ^-1 (x-1/1) +c /////////////// case closed :D

    Now substitute back x -1 in place of t . You will get your answer
