Hello all,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I've solved this equation to get:

[tex]

\int \arcsin{(x)}dx = \sqrt{1-x^2}+ x\arcsin{(x}) + C

[/tex]

using integration by parts. I have found, however, that my textbook has

the part

[tex]-\sqrt{1-x^2}[/tex]

instead of a +, leaving the answer

[tex]

\int \arcsin{(x)}dx = -\sqrt{1-x^2}+ x\arcsin{(x}) + C

[/tex]

This minus sign has been confirmed by a website I came across[/PLAIN] [Broken]Code (Text):[PLAIN]http://math2.org/math/integrals/tableof.htm

Elsewhere on this forum I've seen the answer with the plus sign:giving rise to thisCode (Text):https://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?t=89216

inconsistency.

Any help is appreciated and thanks in advance,
