For example, I tried solving for ∫(1/(a^2-x^2)dx using two different substitutions, x=acosu and x=asinu giving different solutions. I got the integral as arcsin(x/a) using x=asinu and -arccos(x/a) using x=acosu. But which one of these is the correct one and how do I tackle this sort of problem if it arises again?
