integrating factor method

this is the end part of a question and i dont understand the final integrating part.


THEREFORE Y (1-X^2)^1/2 = / (1/1-X^2).(1-X^2)^1/2 dX

Y.(1-X^2)^1/2 = / (1/(1-X^2)^1/2 dX

/ (1/(1-X^2)^1/2) dX = SIN^-1 X + C

Y.(1-X^2)^1/2 = SIN^-1 X + C

The bit that i do not get is how did they get from

/ (1/(1-x^2)^1/2) dX = sin^-1 x + C

i cant see how they integrated to get to sin-1 x, is there a method that i do not know?

thank you for helping!
