#### Solution

Let `I=int sqrt(x^2-a^2)dx`

`I=int sqrt(x^2-a^2).1.dx`

`I=sqrt(x^2-a^2).intdx -int[d/dx(sqrt(x^2-a^2))intdx]dx`

`I=xsqrt(x^2-a^2)-int[(2x)/(2sqrt(x^2-a^2))x]dx`

`I=xsqrt(x^2-a^2)-int[(x^2)/(sqrt(x^2-a^2))]dx`

`I=xsqrt(x^2-a^2)-int[(x^2-a^2+a^2)/(sqrt(x^2-a^2))]dx`

`I=xsqrt(x^2-a^2)-int(x^2-a^2)/(sqrt(x^2-a^2))dx+a^2intdx/(sqrt(x^2-a^2)`

`I=xsqrt(x^2-a^2)-intsqrt(x^2-a^2)dx+a^2intdx/(sqrt(x^2-a^2)`

`I=xsqrt(x^2-a^2)-I+a^2intdx/(sqrt(x^2-a^2)`

`2I=xsqrt(x^2-a^2)+a^2log|x+sqrt(x^2-a^2)|+C'`

`I=(xsqrt(x^2-a^2))/2+a^2/2log|x+sqrt(x^2-a^2)|+C^'/2`

`I=(xsqrt(x^2-a^2))/2+a^2/2log|x+sqrt(x^2-a^2)|+C`
