    Using integration by parts, ntegral(arcsin(x/2)dx
    Limits root3 and 0


    I keep getting the wrong answer and I'm not sure why

    I used u=arcsin(x/2)
    u'=1/2squareroot(1-1/4x^2)

    v'=1
    v=1


    Can anyone help please?

    Thank you in advance to anyone that helps.

    Using integration by parts, show that integral(arcsin(x/2)dx=1/8
    Limits root3 and 0

    For some students this is recognisable

    otherwise use the substitution

    u = 4 - x2

    PS
    the a a far better way of doing this integral.
    Post your correct solution first so I cannot be accused of posting full solutions, and I will then post an alternative
