    \[\int \frac{1}{x^2 + a^2}dx = \frac{1}{a}tan^{-1}\frac{x}{a} + C\] \[\int \frac{1}{x^2-a^2}dx = \frac{1}{2a}Log\left | \frac{x-a}{x+a} \right | + C\] \[\int \frac{1}{a^2-x^2}dx = \frac{1}{2a}Log\left | \frac{a+x}{a-x} \right | + C\] \[\int \frac{1}{\sqrt{a^2-x^2}} = sin^{-1}\frac{x}{a} + C\] \[\int \frac{1}{\sqrt{a^2+x^2}} = Log\left | x + \sqrt{a^2 + x^2} \right | + C\] \[\int \frac{1}{\sqrt{x^2-a^2}} = Log\left | x + \sqrt{x^2 - a^2} \right | + C\]

    Here is one example too based on one of the formulas that I have written above: Evaluate: \[\color{green}{\int \frac{1}{\sqrt{9 - 25x^2}}dx}\] Solution: One must note that in the given formulas, the coefficient of x is 1 or -1.. Here, the coefficient of x is not 1 or -1, instead it is -25 or you can say 25.. So, firstly you should make it 1 by taking 25 common of the square root and one should also note that when a term is taken out of square root bracket, then it gets square rooted.. So 25 has the square root 5 so that there comes the factor 5.. Now, the integral becomes: \[\huge \color{blue}{ = \int \frac{1}{5\sqrt{\frac{9}{25} - x^2}}dx}\] \[\huge \color{red}{= \frac{1}{5} \int \frac{1}{\sqrt{(\frac{3}{5})^2 - x^2}}dx}\] This resembles like the formula that I have written at number \(\color{violet}{\mathbf{4..}}\) Using that Formula: \[\huge \color{cyan}{= \frac{1}{5}(sin^{-1} \frac{x}{\frac{3}{5}} + C)}\] \[\huge \color{orange}{= \frac{1}{5}sin^{-1} \frac{5x}{3} + \frac{C}{5}}\] As \(\color{orange}{\frac{C}{5} = Constant = \textbf{We can take it as C itself..}}\) So, the final answer becomes: \[\huge \color{green}{= \frac{1}{5}sin^{-1} \frac{5x}{3} + C}\] Therefore, \[\huge \color{green}{{\int \frac{1}{\sqrt{9 - 25x^2}}dx} = \frac{1}{5}sin^{-1} \frac{5x}{3} + C}\]

    However; you can derive them without memorising the above formula..

    At every school or college, the Integral Table is not given, so, it is better to remember these so that in emergency you can use them..

    well; the table of integrals is given in exams here. i just find deriving it is easier for harder problems..or when it is stated that you have to derive it..

    Well, I can prove tone or two of them, so that one can get better knowledge of these formulas where they have come from: Let us prove First Formula.. \[\int\limits_{}^{}\frac{1}{x^2 + a^2}dx = \frac{1}{a}\tan^{-1}\frac{x}{a} + C\] Proof: LHS: Substitute \(\large x = atan \theta\) in Left Hand Side, \(\large \theta = tan^{-1}\frac{x}{a}\) \(\large dx = asec^2 \theta.d\theta\) Putting in LHS, \[\int\limits_{}^{}\frac{asec^2 \theta}{a^2 + a^2\tan^2 \theta}d \theta = \frac{1}{a}\int\limits_{}^{}\frac{\sec^2 \theta}{1 + \tan^2 \theta}d \theta\] As, \(\large 1 + tan^2 \theta = sec^2 \theta\), \[= \frac{1}{a}\int\limits_{}^{}1.d \theta = \frac{1}{a}\theta + C\] Replace \(\theta\), = \[\large \color{DarkGreen}{= \frac{1}{a}\tan^{-1}\frac{x}{a} + C}\] \(\large \color{Orange}{\mathbf{Hence \; Proved..}}\)

    Let us prove now Last One... \[\int\limits_{}^{}\frac{1}{\sqrt{x^2 - a^2}}dx = Log \left| x + \sqrt{x^2 - a^2} \right| + C\] LHS: Put \(\large x = asec \theta\), \(\large \theta = sec^{-1} \frac{x}{a}\) \(\large dx = sec \theta tan \theta.d \theta\) Put in LHS: \[\int\limits_{}^{}\frac{1}{a^2\sec^2 \theta - a^2}a.\sec \theta.\tan \theta.d \theta = \int\limits_{}^{}\sec \theta.d \theta = Log \left| \sec \theta + \tan \theta \right| + C_1\] \[= Log \left| \sec \theta + \sqrt{\sec^2 \theta - 1} \right| + C_1 = Log \left| \frac{x}{a} + \sqrt{\frac{x^2}{a^2} - 1} \right| + C_1\] [Since, \(\large 1 + tan^2 \theta = sec^2 \theta\)] \[= Log \left| x + \sqrt{x^2 - a^2} \right| - Log(a) + C_1\] \[\large \color{green} {= Log \left| x + \sqrt{x^2 - a^2} \right| + C}\] \(\large \color{Orange}{\mathbf{Hence \; Proved..}}\)
