Well, we have:
[tex]\int_{0}^{9}\sqrt{36-0.22x^{2}}dx=6\int_{0}^{9}\sqrt{1-(\frac{\sqrt{0.22}x}{6})^{2}}dx[/tex]

Set:
[tex]u=\frac{\sqrt{0.22}x}{6}}\to{dx}=\frac{6}{\sqrt{0.22}}[/tex]
And our integral may be rewritten as:
[tex]\frac{36}{\sqrt{0.22}}\int_{0}^{\frac{3\sqrt{0.22}}{2}}\sqrt{1-u^{2}}du[/tex]

Do you have any ideas how to proceed from here?
