How to calculate the drivative of tan -1 (x/sqrt(1-x^2))?
The solution says it set y = as sqrt(x-1) and it gives dy/dx = -1/(2sqrt(x-1)). How is that possible? (Problem 2 18.01, Integration Techniques PDF 5A - 3g)
At vero eos et accusamus et iusto odio dignissimos ducimus qui blanditiis praesentium voluptatum deleniti atque corrupti quos dolores et quas molestias excepturi sint occaecati cupiditate non provident, similique sunt in culpa qui officia deserunt mollitia animi, id est laborum et dolorum fuga.
Et harum quidem rerum facilis est et expedita distinctio. Nam libero tempore, cum soluta nobis est eligendi optio cumque nihil impedit quo minus id quod maxime placeat facere possimus, omnis voluptas assumenda est, omnis dolor repellendus.
Itaque earum rerum hic tenetur a sapiente delectus, ut aut reiciendis voluptatibus maiores alias consequatur aut perferendis doloribus asperiores repellat.
This is actually a pretty cool problem, but a tough one, even with the minimal explanation provided in the materials. A full explanation is too long to type here so I wrote it up separately and posted it as a PDF.

@creeksider, I cannot up vote your explanation enough! I was close working it out by myself but lacked confidence that my page of calculations was going anywhere because the given solution seemed so elegant. I kept quitting and starting over. Your write up cured that lack of confidence...for this problem at least! Thank you.
