In an integration solution, the integral of (1/(sqrt (8-u squared)) is written as arcsin(u/sqrt 8), but I don't see how they got it. When I did it I got (1/8)*(arcsin(u*sqrt8)). What I did was take sqrt8 common in the denominator to get it in the form sqrt(1-u sq.) and then find the integral (arcsin u) and then since my 'u' was sqrt.8 * u, I divided sqrt.8 from the whole thing. Where did I go wrong?

"take sqrt8 common in the denominator to get it in the form sqrt(1-u sq.)"
Shouldn't it be
When you do a substitution, it is always advisable to use a different letter. You are likely to confuse yourself if you use the same letter, namely, substitute u by u/sqrt(8).
