    The secoind derivative of a product of two functions f(x) and g(x) is:

    f''(x) g(x) + 2 f'(x) g'(x) + f(x)g''(x)

    If you take f(x) = x and
    g(x) = arcsin(x) then the first term is zero, so you only have to evaluate the last two terms. If you add them up you will get (2-x^2)/(1-x^2)^3/2.

    s=çdx/(4+5cos x). By using t-substitution, i.e. t=tan(x/2) we get cos x=(1-t^2)/(1+t^2) and dx=2dt/(1+t^2). Substituting in s and simplifying, we get s= 2çdt/4(1+t^2)+5(1-t^2)=2çdt/(9-t^2). Using standard result çdx/(a^2-x^2)=1/a*arctanh …
