Here I am, asking yet another question. :), Gotta keep you guys busy you know.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am just practicing a bunch of integration questions found in a textbook a friend lent me, and I probably don't need to know how to integrate this, but I am interested anyways :).

[tex]\int_{0}^{0.5}\frac{dx}{\sqrt{1-x^{2}}}[/tex]

This looks like a "Do you understand the notation", type question to me. I don't need help integrating, but only finding an antiderivative, I think I can handle the rest.

Is this some fancy way of writing [tex]\int_{0}^{0.5}\frac{1}{\sqrt{1-x^2}}dx[/tex]? As this would normally be the way I would expect to see it. Or is it different? If it's what I think it is then of course the antiderivative is simply [tex]sin^{-1}x[/tex] , but I want to make sure. It's an even numbered question so there is no answer in the back :(.

Thanks yet again.
