Well you've been given the substitution so what have you done so far?

can anyone take me through this answer plz?
use substitution x = sin& to integrate :
1 / (1  x²) ^ 3/2 dx.
then you must differentiate x = sin& to get dx/d&=cos&
know what to do next? 
The way you have set out the question is not very clear.
If you mean:
Unparseable or potentially dangerous latex formula. Error 4: no dvi output from LaTeX. It is likely that your formula contains syntax errors or worse.\int{\frac{1}{(1x^2)^\frac{3}{2}}dx
Then using a substitution of think trig identities. 
that's what i mean AEsp.
i have used tirg identities and have integrated and have arrived here:
I = 0.5sin2x ( 1 + cos2x) ^ 1/2 
Ok then i believe your answer is wrong.
Then using substitution x = sin u
and trig identity
Unparseable or potentially dangerous latex formula. Error 4: no dvi output from LaTeX. It is likely that your formula contains syntax errors or worse.\frac{dx}{du} = cos u
\displaystyle \int {(cos^2u)^{\frac{3}{2}}cos u\, du
\displaystyle = \int \frac{cos u}{\sqrt {(cos^2u)^3}}\, du
\displaystyle = \int \frac{cosu}{cos^3u}\, du
\displaystyle = \int \frac{1}{cos^2u}\, du
\displaystyle = \int sec^2u\, du
Im sure you recognise the integral of

integral 1/(1/(1x^2))^(3/2) dx
Expanding the integrand 1/(1/(1x^2))^(3/2) gives 2 sqrt(1/(1x^2)) x^2+sqrt(1/(1x^2))+sqrt(1/(1x^2)) x^4:
= integral (2 sqrt(1/(1x^2)) x^2+sqrt(1/(1x^2))+sqrt(1/(1x^2)) x^4) dx
Integrate the sum term by term and factor out constants:
= integral sqrt(1/(1x^2)) dx2 integral x^2 sqrt(1/(1x^2)) dx+ integral x^4 sqrt(1/(1x^2)) dx
For the integrand x^2 sqrt(1/(1x^2)), simplify powers:
= integral sqrt(1/(1x^2)) dx2 integral x^2/sqrt(1x^2) dx+ integral x^4 sqrt(1/(1x^2)) dx
For the integrand, x^2/sqrt(1x^2) substitute x = sin(u) and dx = cos(u) du. Then sqrt(1x^2) = sqrt(1sin^2(u)) = cos(u) and u = sin^(1)(x):
= 2 integral sin^2(u) du+ integral sqrt(1/(1x^2)) dx+ integral x^4 sqrt(1/(1x^2)) dx
For the integrand x^4 sqrt(1/(1x^2)), simplify powers:
= 2 integral sin^2(u) du+ integral sqrt(1/(1x^2)) dx+ integral x^4/sqrt(1x^2) dx
For the integrand, x^4/sqrt(1x^2) substitute x = sin(s) and dx = cos(s) ds. Then sqrt(1x^2) = sqrt(1sin^2(s)) = cos(s) and s = sin^(1)(x):
= integral sin^4(s) ds2 integral sin^2(u) du+ integral sqrt(1/(1x^2)) dx
For the integrand sqrt(1/(1x^2)), simplify powers:
= integral sin^4(s) ds2 integral sin^2(u) du+ integral 1/sqrt(1x^2) dx
The integral of 1/sqrt(1x^2) is sin^(1)(x):
= integral sin^4(s) ds2 integral sin^2(u) du+sin^(1)(x)
Write sin^2(u) as 1/21/2 cos(2 u):
= integral sin^4(s) ds2 integral (1/21/2 cos(2 u)) du+sin^(1)(x)
Integrate the sum term by term and factor out constants:
= integral sin^4(s) ds2 integral 1/2 du+ integral cos(2 u) du+sin^(1)(x)
The integral of 1/2 is u/2:
= integral sin^4(s) dsu+ integral cos(2 u) du+sin^(1)(x)
For the integrand cos(2 u), substitute p = 2 u and dp = 2 du:
= 1/2 integral cos(p) dp+ integral sin^4(s) dsu+sin^(1)(x)
The integral of cos(p) is sin(p):
= (sin(p))/2+ integral sin^4(s) dsu+sin^(1)(x)
Use the reduction formula, integral sin^m(s) ds = (cos(s) sin^(m1)(s))/m + (m1)/m integral sin^(2+m)(s) ds, where m = 4:
= (sin(p))/21/4 sin^3(s) cos(s)+3/4 integral sin^2(s) dsu+sin^(1)(x)
Write sin^2(s) as 1/21/2 cos(2 s):
= (sin(p))/21/4 sin^3(s) cos(s)+3/4 integral (1/21/2 cos(2 s)) dsu+sin^(1)(x)
Integrate the sum term by term and factor out constants:
= (sin(p))/21/4 sin^3(s) cos(s)+3/4 integral 1/2 ds3/8 integral cos(2 s) dsu+sin^(1)(x)
For the integrand cos(2 s), substitute w = 2 s and dw = 2 ds:
= (sin(p))/21/4 sin^3(s) cos(s)+3/4 integral 1/2 dsu3/16 integral cos(w) dw+sin^(1)(x)
The integral of 1/2 is s/2:
= (sin(p))/2+(3 s)/81/4 sin^3(s) cos(s)u3/16 integral cos(w) dw+sin^(1)(x)
The integral of cos(w) is sin(w):
= (sin(p))/2+(3 s)/81/4 sin^3(s) cos(s)u(3 sin(w))/16+sin^(1)(x)+constant
Substitute back for w = 2 s:
= (sin(p))/2+(3 s)/81/4 sin^3(s) cos(s)3/8 sin(s) cos(s)u+sin^(1)(x)+constant
Substitute back for p = 2 u:
= (3 s)/81/4 sin^3(s) cos(s)3/8 sin(s) cos(s)u+sin(u) cos(u)+sin^(1)(x)+constant
Substitute back for s = sin^(1)(x):
= u+sin(u) cos(u)3/8 sqrt(1x^2) x1/4 sqrt(1x^2) x^3+11/8 sin^(1)(x)+constant
Substitute back for u = sin^(1)(x):
= 5/8 sqrt(1x^2) x1/4 sqrt(1x^2) x^3+3/8 sin^(1)(x)+constant
Factor the answer a different way:
= 1/8 (x sqrt(1x^2) (52 x^2)+3 sin^(1)(x))+constant
Which is equivalent for restricted x values to:
= 1/8 sqrt(1/(1x^2)) (2 x^57 x^3+3 sqrt(1x^2) sin^(1)(x)+5 x)+constant

If you read the thread, you'd also see that we don't think that's what the OP was actually trying to solve. (Although it is what he said he was trying to solve).
