(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Evaluate the following integral:

(int)1/sqrt(2x-x^{2})dx

2. Relevant equations

d(arcsinx)/dx = 1/sqrt(1-x^{2})

3. The attempt at a solution

I just need a good start in the right direction on this one so I can at least try it. I know the arcsin d/dx as above, but how do I make this work? Is it some kind of integration by parts or reduction? I have no idea how to go about dealing with the sqrt(2x-x^{2}) mostly, or how it would get there from arcsin...

any help you can give would be much appreciated!
