    ok sorry about delay...heres what your steps should be \[x = 2\sin \theta\] \[dx = 2\cos \theta d \theta\] \[\rightarrow \int\limits_{}^{} \frac{2 \cos \theta}{4 \sin^{2} \theta} (2 \cos \theta) d \theta\] \[= \int\limits_{}^{}\frac{ \cos^{2} \theta}{\sin^{2} \theta} d \theta \] \[=\int\limits_{}^{}\frac{1-\sin^{2} \theta}{\sin^{2} \theta} d \theta\] \[=\int\limits_{}^{} \csc^{2} \theta - 1\] \[= \cot \theta - \theta +C\]

    sure thing ... and i did skip some steps just for sake of time and space, but on paper its good to be thorough so you don't make any mistakes
