so it's the stupid chain rule that's messing me up. I have no clue how to find this. Wolfram Alpha throws sin inverse at me!

Chain rule? Then, does that mean you are referring to derivatives?

B/c the antiderivative of that would technically be arcsine.

well, I took a stab at it and got 8(1/21/3(x)^3)^(1/2) but when I tried to check it, the chain rule throws it all off! We haven't gotten to integrating yet! I don't even know what that means.

Okay, I guess I have to review this chapter in my textbook. I thought this homework assignment would only be based on what we did in class....

Yes, I get it now. It's an identity. The d/dx of sin inverse is 1/(1x)^2. Thanks again!
