You don't even need Trig substitution.

[tex]\int x\sqrt{9-x^2}dx[/tex]

[tex]u=9-x^2[/tex]
[tex]du=-2xdx \rightarrow xdx=-\frac 1 2 du[/tex]

I know that I don't need that.
But the problem is, I have to use it.
The exercise require it.

Well you posted the solution to it? I don't know what else to tell you. Just analyze what they did. Work it yourself a couple times if you have to.

You forgot a term when you first did the substitution.

x = 3sin(u)
dx = 3cos(u)du

(9 - x^2)^(1/2) = 3cos(u)

So the integral becomes 27sin(u)cos^2(u)du

[tex]\int x^2\sqrt{9-x^2}dx[/tex]
apropo
[tex]u=x^2\sqrt{9-x^2}dx[/tex]
