The hint I gave you for the definite integral can also be applied to obtain an indefinite integral.

The graph of the function is a semicircle of radius 3 centered at (3,0). To get an indefinite integral calculate the angle between the x value on the circle and add the sector area to the triangle area (for x > 3). If x < 3, you need to subtract a triangle from the sector area.
