    the answer of the integration is \[ {1 \over 4} \sqrt{b^2 -a^2}(b-a)\left( t + {\sin (4t)\over 4}\right)\]

    On the other hand, Mathematica expresses solution as \[ \frac{\sqrt{a-x} \sqrt{-b+x} \left(2 \sqrt{a-x} \sqrt{-b+x} (-a-b+2 x)-(a-b)^2 \text{ArcTan}\left[\frac{a+b-2 x}{2 \sqrt{a-x} \sqrt{-b+x}}\right]\right)}{8 \sqrt{(a-x) (-b+x)}} \]

    this is minus \[ {1 \over 4} \sqrt{b^2 -a^2}(b-a)\left( t - {\sin (4t)\over 4}\right) \]

    Hmm.... \[\int \sqrt{(a-x)(x-b)}dx\]Let \(x=acos^2t + bsin^2t\) \[dx = (-2a\sin t\cos t + 2b \sin t\cos t)dt = (b-a)sin2t dt\] Then, the integral becomes (a-x) = a - (acos^2 t + bsin^2 t) = a (sin^2 t) - b sin^2 t = (a-b) sin^2 t (x-b) = (acos^2t + bsin^2t) - b = acos^2 t - b (cos^2 t) = (a-b) cos^2t \[\int \sqrt{(a-b)sin^2t \times (a-b)cos^2t} (b-a)sin2tdt\]\[=\int [(a-b)sint cost] (b-a)sin2tdt\]\[=-\frac{1}{2}\int (b-a)^2sin^22tdt\] \[=-\frac{1}{2}(b-a)^2\int sin^2 2tdt\]\[=-\frac{1}{2}(b-a)^2\int \frac{1-cos4t}{2}dt\]\[=-\frac{1}{4}(b-a)^2 (t-\frac{1}{4}sin4t)+C\]Anything wrong here?

    If we put \[ \sin (t) = \sqrt{x-a\over b-a} \\ \cos (t) = \sqrt{b-x\over b-a} \\ t = \arctan \sqrt { \left( x-a \over b-x\right) } \]

    there is a formula that \( \arctan(x) + \arctan(1/x)= {\pi \over 2}\) |dw:1349079814250:dw|

    hence we have \[ \tan^{-1} \left(\sqrt{\frac{x-a}{b-x}}\right ) = {\pi \over 2} - \text{ArcTan}\left[\frac{a+b-2 x}{2 \sqrt{a-x} \sqrt{-b+x}}\right]\] But this \( \pi \over 2 \) is constant and you can ignore it. Hence the result of the wolf follows.

    well ... remember this \( \arctan(x) + \arctan(1/x)= {\pi \over 2} \) and after integration you can manipulate your solution by adding or subtracting constants. expanple:- \( c + \sin^2 x\) and \( c - \cos ^2 x\) are equivalent solution.

    this is typical when you integrate \[ \int \sin x \cos x \; dx\] one time let sin(x) = u ... another time let cos(x) = u ... another time put sin(x)cos(x) = 1/2 sin(2x)

    Hmm.. I remember someone told me that when I got a different answer from the textbook, it may not be the case that I did it wrong. sometimes, the answers may be different by some constants.. Perhaps, that's the case :\
