In summary, the formula for integrating arcsinx is ∫arcsinx dx = xarcsinx - √(x^2 - 1) + C. This formula can be proved using integration by parts and trigonometric identities, specifically the double angle formula for sine. The domain of arcsinx is [-1, 1] and the range is [-π/2, π/2]. Additionally, the integration of arcsinx can be solved using the substitution method by substituting u = sinx. There are several real-life applications of integrating arcsinx, including calculating surface area, finding arc length, and analyzing signals in various fields.

Use the "same" method as for arctan x and for ln x.

arcsin x = (arcsin x) * 1

Now integrate by parts!
